A Community of Exceptional Nurses
The act of bullying in healthcare undermines the well-being of both care providers and patients. Bullying typically leads to moral distress among nursing professionals, and negatively impacts two of AACN’s six essential standards for Healthy Work Environments ― true collaboration and skilled communication. For the sake of nurses and patients, it is critical to recognize bullying as it occurs and address the issues that enable this unacceptable behavior in the workplace.
This webinar will examine the concept of bullying and its associated continuum of behaviors to help you identify bullying in your environment. The presentation will also review research data on the effects of bullying on you, your colleagues and your patients, and suggest strategies for individuals and those in leadership positions for dealing with bullying behaviors.
At the end of the session, participants will be able to:
