This reflection is comprised of 2 sections, collectively totaling a minimum of 500 words.
Complete your reflection by responding to all prompts.
1) Quality and Change in Health Care
Change in health care is often related to quality. There are three organizations that are the major driving forces of the current emphasis on quality.
Explore each of the organizations listed below.
Reflect upon the focus, mission, vision, and values for each and the impact each organization has on your nursing practice.
2) Handling Conflict: Self-Assessment
Workplace conflict is unavoidable. Although it tends to have a negative connotation, it can be a positive catalyst for change. Conflict can and should be effectively managed by everyone at every level of the organization.
This self-assessment is designed to make you more aware of how you could and do handle conflict at work.
Complete the Conflict Self-Assessment from Box 23-2 in Chapter 23 of Leading and Managing in Nursing.
Read the information from Boxes 23-3, 23-4, 23-5, 23-6, 23-7, and 23-8 to see some of the appropriate uses for each approach. As you read, think about times when you have applied each approach effectively or ineffectively.
Use the totals from your self-assessment to stimulate your thinking about how you do and could handle conflict at work.
- Does your pattern of frequency tend to be consistent, or inconsistent, with the types of conflicts you face? That is, does your way of dealing with conflict tend to match the situations in which that approach is most useful? Why or why not?
