Tests the acceptability and effectiveness of a two-phase mindfulness-based stress reduction program (8-week initial treatment plus a 10-month maintenance phase) in alleviating work stress-related symptoms (i.e., burnout, heart rate [HR], and blood pressure [BP]) in a sample of 42 physicians. Found practical consequences for reducing and controlling risks of developing burnout and cardiovascular disease in this population and enhancing well-being in life.
