The use of mindfulness-based interventions in healthcare is expanding rapidly, as is the empirical evidence base supporting the benefits of mindfulness for both patients and healthcare providers. This interprofessional course provides students with a strong foundation in the history, theory, science, practice, and clinical application of mindfulness with patient/client populations across the lifespan and in various contexts. Students will actively engage in experiencing and exploring the core mindfulness practices for both professional and personal development.

This course provides an in depth scientific knowledge base relevant to selected pathophysiological states. Major concepts from basic pathophysiology are built upon with consideration of responses across the lifespan. Advanced concepts of pathophysiological functioning are correlated with clinical decisions related to selected diagnostic tests and initiation of therapeutic regimens applicable to advanced practice nurses across specialties. Specific disease processes are examined incorporating the role of developmental physiology, embryologic, genetic, and environmental factors in the epidemiology of disease.
