Conflict De-escalation and Resolution

CNSs encounter conflict frequently. Because of the impact of conflict in healthcare, all CNSs need training in conflict resolution and de-escalation. However, few CNSs have been trained to truly understand the components of conflict or effective methods to resolve it.

By learning to identify the conditions that create conflict, the causes that trigger it, and the techniques for resolving it, the CNS will be better prepared. Success under conditions of high stress, risk, ambiguity, and complexity require effective conflict resolution skills. While it is impossible for the CNS to resolve all conflict without the collaboration of the interdisciplinary team, it is their centrality to healthcare that places CNSs in the position where they can take the lead in these efforts.

Don’t Get Sucked In: Maintaining Healthy Professional Boundaries

Clinical Nurse Specialists have the obligation to maintain professional therapeutic boundaries with patients and fellow health care professionals.  While providing care and support, relationships can develop that may lead to a blurring of these boundaries.

Professional boundaries are a tenet in the nursing code of ethics, but these boundaries are frequently crossed without nurses recognizing the impact.  It is necessary to educate Clinical Nurse Specialists about professional therapeutic boundaries to enable them to not only provide compassionate, patient-centered care but also to assist other staff in providing this care without crossing these boundaries.

Extinguish Burnout: Practical Guidance for Prevention and Recovery
