Mindfulness-based meditation and stress management are attracting enormous interest in the mental health and medical fields. Mindfulness has a diverse range of applications including management of depression, anxiety, chronic pain and eating disorders as well as having direct and beneficial physiological effects relevant to the management of heart disease, cancer and other chronic conditions. Dr Craig Hassed’s Mindfulness Training for Health Professionals program is endorsed for post-graduate medical education through the Royal Australian College of General Practitioners, QA and CPD Program (Cat 2).
