Dr. Carter Lebares joins us to speak about Efficacy of Mindfulness-Based Cognitive Training in Surgery.
As secular mindfulness finds more traction in the world, it’s also meeting new perspectives on what practice could be. While traditional forms remain of value to those seeking outcomes that are rooted in a religious context, mindfulness is also being studied under the lens of science.
