Abstract:The aim of the present study is to examine what is known about brief mindfulness-based interventions for hospital nurses and whether they are an effective strategy to improve their mental well-being and decrease ill-being. A systematic review was conducted and the search procedure was based on the PRISMA model. The results demonstrated a median length of four weeks and sessions had a median duration of 105 minutes. Most brief mindfulness-based interventions share their focus on formal and informal mindfulness practice, in particular breathing techniques with the overall aim to decrease stress levels. However, they still differ in many regards, e.g. in their delivery methods. There is evidence that brief mindfulness-based interventions are effective in increasing mental health of hospital nurses, especially in enhancing life satisfaction, relaxation and self-compassion and decreasing stress and burnout.
