Article.3: Mindfulness-Based Stress Reduction and cancer care

systematic review meditation  :  Mindfulness-Based Stress Reduction as supportive therapy in cancer  care: systematic review

Click on the ‘systematic review meditation’ text in blue to link to an interesting systematic review on cancer support therapies and its usefulness by nurses (working with patients) and patients (self-support).  The main focused therapy is called Mindfulness-Based Stress Reduction therapy or MBSR, which is interesting to read about on its own, as it has many elements that can relate practically in everyday life.

Thanks, be aware and eat with care 🙂
