Summary:

Meditation training has proven to be an effective adjunct therapy for many conditions and can be discussed as an option among healthcare providers. Healthcare programs are incorporating meditation into many clinical practices. Relaxation and meditation are beneficial in the treatment of many diseases, because they have been shown to improve psychological and physical health. As complementary modalities, including meditation, gain more acceptance, healthcare providers as a team need to be informed about their uses and application to clinical practice. This course discusses meditation and the research supporting its use when caring for patients with a variety of conditions.
