tEACH forum – Teaching conflict resolution skills to inter-disciplinary skills teams

Conflict amongst health professionals working in inter-disciplinary teams in the hospital is a known patient safety issue and a source of stress and burnout for the professional. Teaching conflict resolution skills is challenging as it can be difficult to generate scenarios which safely trigger the learner’s experience of heightened emotion and also facilitate the opportunity to practice the communication skills to resolve the conflict.

At the end of this workshop, participants will be able to:

  • Analyse the issues associated with teaching learners conflict resolution skills for use with colleagues in the workplace
  • Evaluate a number of experiential activities and a didactic presentation which can be used to teach conflict resolution skills including a role-play which triggers genuine emotions
  • Select the components of the teaching plan presented  to design a session to suit the needs of their learners
