A critical issue in the contemporary field of public health is the organizational stress experienced by healthcare professionals. An integrative and complementary therapy that research has shown as efficacious in helping healthcare professionals to cope with stress is mindfulness meditation. An intervention, however, can't merely be efficacious, it also needs to be feasible to be implemented in a specific political and organizational context. This paper proposes a theoretical logical model and evaluation matrix of the feasibility of a mindfulness-based stress reduction program for primary care professionals. The literature review about the topic was the source for the construction of the theoretical logical model and evaluation matrix, and the validation of those was given by consensus methods, gathering data from experts in the field.
