Mindfulness is “the intentional, accepting and non-judgmental focus of one’s attention on the emotions, thoughts and sensations occurring in the present moment”. In recent years, mindfulness practice has been increasingly employed to alleviate a variety of mental and physical conditions. There is an increasing evidence base for its benefits.
This two day workshop is specifically designed for healthcare professionals in primary care who wish to use mindfulness for their own personal benefit but also to raise their awareness of it as a potential support for patients. The course aims to create a calm, safe and comfortable space where people are free to participate without the need for self disclosure. The two week gap between the days is intended to allow reflection and practice at home or in the work place. We will be exploring theory, history, evidence, techniques and daily practice of Mindfulness, emphasising its relationship to health and well being. Techniques used to introduce and cultivate Mindfulness will include Body Scan, Breath Awareness and Compassion Meditations.

This cadaver workshop will equip delegates with a good working knowledge of the surgical anatomy of the neck and will in particular include practice of parotid surgery, thyroid and parathyroid surgery, laryngectomy and different types of neck dissection.
Training will be delivered face to face at Hull York Medical School’s state-of-the-art anatomy facilities at the University of Hull campus. Under the direction and supervision of expert tutors surgical trainees will become better equipped to perform surgical interventions to a high standard.
At Hull York Medical School a special “lite embalming” technique is used resulting in cadaveric tissues which are much more like real life. The course provides a big safety plus for surgeons and patients and a great advantage for our trainees, allowing a more true-to-life practice before performing procedures on a live patient.

This course is designed to introduce participants to Motivational Interviewing principles and skills in order to increase the effectiveness of routine healthcare interactions. Motivational Interviewing is a style of communication that seeks to assist people in exploring their choices in health behaviour and life style. It is person-centred but also adopts a gentle guiding style. It was originally developed by William Miller and Stephen Rollnick in the field of addictive behaviours in the 1980s but over the past 20 years its utility has also been recognised across a spectrum of issues related to health and lifestyle related behaviours including obesity, diabetes, medication adherence, physiotherapy, and rehabilitation.
A number of HEE funded places are available for nurses and nurse-practitioners on a first-come-first-served basis.
