The British College of Aesthetic Medicine (BCAM) has enlisted the help of the world’s first mindfulness institute to introduce its 20th Anniversary Mindfulness and Wellbeing Initiative for its members.
The Mindfulness Initiative is a government think tank and secretariat to the All-Party Parliamentary Group (APPG) on Mindfulness.
As well as live Zoom sessions and videos uploaded for members on the BCAM website, the College will signpost useful resources and share tips from fellow members.
BCAM president Dr Uliana Gout commented, “BCAM led the way in 2020 with its ‘fact not opinion’ guidance for members about opening clinics and treating patients following the pandemic, and now we’re taking the lead again with this new wellbeing initiative in the College’s 20th anniversary year.”
BCAM trustee Dr Bhavjit Kaur is leading on the new initiative on behalf of the College and hopes it will offer support, guidance and comfort to members who are facing challenges during the pandemic. She said, “BCAM recognises the need to support members in many different ways and I am passionate about wellbeing and mindfulness so I wanted to provide some practical help that members can easily access.”
first mindfulness session for BCAM members will be delivered via Zoom on Friday
March 5 at 12:30pm. It will feature deputy director of The Mindfulness
Initiative Ruth Ormston, who will explore the subject of mindfulness,
discussing research and information about its benefits, whilst giving a short
demonstration for members to experience.
