1
Conflict Resolution
  • David Thompson, DNSc, MS, RN
  • Jill Marsteller, PhD, MPP

2
What is Conflict?
  • Perception of mutual interference
  • A process that begins when goals of one party are
    frustrated by another
  • Requires interdependence/interaction

  • Conflict Natural (human relations view) N
  • Conflict Bad (traditional view) B
  • Conflict must be managed

Sources of Conflict

  • Goals of parties are incompatible
  • Other structural factors (size, routinization,
    specialization, reward systems)
  • Conflicting perceptions, ideas, or beliefs
  • Differences between people
  • Conflicting thoughts/needs within an individual
  • Lack of communication (maybe)

    related to the task) G
  • Emotional or Relationship conflict
    (interpersonal conflict--dislike, negative
    emotions) B
  • Administrative or Process conflict (disagreement
    on how to get the task completede.g., duties,
    decision-making technique) B to N

Goal of Conflict Resolution
  • Confront problems, communicate openly and
    respectfully with someone of opposing opinion to
    provide optimal patient care.

7
Why address Conflict Resolution?
  • Inevitable in dynamic environments
  • Conflict can lead to feelings of powerlessness
  • Conflict can cause anyone especially subordinates
    to view administrators, attending physicians as
    adversaries and creates conflict and divided
    loyalties in the workplace

8
Assertion IS
  • Being appropriately assertive means
  • Organized in thought and communication
  • Technically and socially competent
  • Disavowing perfection while looking for
    clarification / common understanding
  • Being owned by the entire team (this is not just
    a subordinate skill-set, and it must be valued
    by the receiver to work)

9
Assertion Is NOT
  • NOT
  • Aggressive
  • Hostile
  • Confrontational
  • Ambiguous
  • Demeaning
  • Condescending

10
The Assertion Model

    interest of patient safety

Helpful Hints in ApplyingThe Assertion Model
  • Focus on the common goal quality care, the
    welfare of the patient, safety its hard to
    disagree with safe, high quality care
  • Avoid the issue of whos right and whos wrong
    Patient Centered care concentrate on doing the
    right thing
  • De-personalize the conversation
  • Actively avoid being perceived as judgmental
  • Be hard on the problem, not the people

12
Strategies for Conflict Resolution
  1. Withdrawallittle or no significance to either
    party (lose-lose)
  2. Forcingforce outcome regardless of the desire of
    one party (win-lose)
  3. Conciliationgiving in to preserve relationship
    with other party (lose-win)
  4. Compromiseconcerned with both outcome and
    relationship (?-?)

13
Confrontation is an Assertive means ofConflict
Resolution
  • Respectful negotiation
  • Effective Conflict resolution is what is right
    not who is right.
  • Never Aggressive. Use to explain perspectives. If
    handled appropriately may be an opportunity to
    educate the other party involved.

14
Two Attempt Rule

    to reach a common goal.

    continue up the chain of command or escalate to
    achieve resolution.
