Education Research Community Annual Colloquium

BEING, BECOMING, AND BELONGING - RESEARCH INTO A MINDFUL APPROACH TO HEALTH PROFESSIONS EDUCATION

Mindfulness practices offer approaches to reflection that have been argued to contribute to a variety of positive outcomes for those in the caring professions. This session will highlight recent literature on the topic, lessons learned through the design and implementation of a mindfulness course in a university health professions’ curriculum, and outcomes from a study into students’ written reflections on learning about mindfulness. The study findings highlight how mindfulness was described as contributing to: ‘Being’ while doing; ‘Becoming’ through personal transformation; ‘Belonging’ through cultivation of compassion in a mindful community; as well as experiences related to struggle and self-criticism. This session will also consider mindfulness as a form of reflection that comes into conversation with other types such as critical reflection and reflexivity, highlighting how a focus on mindfulness may enhance capabilities to respond to broader social and systemic issues.
 

Elizabeth Anne Kinsella’s interdisciplinary scholarship uses empirical and philosophical inquiry to advance conceptions of professional knowledge, and education and practice methodologies currently used in Health and Social Care. Her research increases awareness of the impact that an understanding of Reflective Practice, and its epistemological foundations, can have on health and social care workers’ outcomes. Elizabeth Anne is a professor of Professional Education and Practice, and a field leader of Health Professional Education, in the Health & Rehabilitation Sciences Graduate Program, at the Faculty of Health Sciences, Western University. She is also a researcher with the Centre for Education Research & Innovation (CERI) in the Schulich School of Medicine & Dentistry, and with the Centre for Research on Health Equity & Social Inclusion (CRHESI), at Western.
