Resident to Resident Altercations: Bullying

Green Clock Hours: 1.25

Bullying is more common in senior care settings than you might expect. Even seasoned nurses and administrators sometimes struggle to distinguish bullying behavior from behavior related to a disease process such as dementia or a “grouchy” personality. Does bullying have objective signs, or is it “in the eye of the beholder”? How can you intervene while protecting the rights of all residents?

 

Healthcare employees are often ill-equipped to deal with bullying behavior and its effects. This course will discuss bullying myths, define bullying behaviors, describe appropriate interventions, and examine the psychosocial aspects of bullying and the ethical dilemmas it inevitably raises. After completing this course, you will not only be more aware of resident-to-resident bullying, you will be able to handle bullying confidently and competently, while also upholding and protecting the rights of all residents.

 

The goal of this educational program is to provide education and insight into adult bullying in the Post-Acute Care setting to activity professionals, recreational therapy professionals, nursing professionals, social work professionals, and administrators.
