Part I: Causes and Consequences of Incivility - Why Civility Matters in Nursing Education
Date: March 21, 2012
Time: 3:00 - 4:00 pm (ET)
Webinar series Overview
Incivility in American society is on the rise, and rude and disruptive behavior is increasing in colleges and universities. In nursing and other health-related disciplines, the risk assumed by not addressing uncivil behavior reaches well beyond the college campus and can negatively impact patient safety. Because nursing programs are places where students (and faculty) provide direct care to patients through clinical experiences, uncivil and disruptive acts must be addressed so that such behaviors do not spiral into aggression and jeopardize the learning and practice environment. Dr. Clark will use polling questions, stories, empirical evidence, and open discussion to provide an overview of incivility in nursing education and to describe a wide range of evidence-based strategies to recognize, prevent, and address incivility in nursing education.
