Susan Bauer-Wu, PhD, RN, FAAN (Nell Hudson Woodruff School of Nursing, Emory University, Atlanta, Georgia) presented ways to bring contemplative practice and pro-social qualities (e.g. empathy, love, kindness, generosity, gratitude, forgiveness, etc. ) to the care of the seriously ill. She covered definitions, descriptions, and research on contemplative practices and mindfulness as well as discussed three important dimensions of mindfulness; attention, intention, and attitude. She also included thoughts on neuroplasticity and the ability for mental training in contemplative work that includes focusing attention, adapting to unexpected changes, monitoring and perceiving the environment, perceiving internal body sensations, etc.
