Session Summary

Mindfulness-based interventions (MBIs) are important skills that can complement or in some cases, be used in lieu of pharmacotherapy. Psychiatric pharmacists should be able to adeptly discuss these skills with patients including how MBIs compare to pharmacotherapy in terms of effectiveness. Pharmacists themselves can benefit tremendously from practicing these skills in both personal and professional settings to reduce stress and burnout.
