Significant of an organization’s culture and values
The culture and values of the organization have a significant impact on nurses’ engagement and professional practices, as well as patient outcomes. It is important to have clear expectations of acceptable behaviours in the workplace. This will allow nurses to freely express their views without fear or judgement. This encourages nurses to collaborate with other healthcare professionals, which improves patient care through interprofessional teamwork and problem solving skills.
Professional conflict often occurs when staff members have different opinions on matters such as new policies or changes to workflows that are required because of changing organizational needs. Organizations with strong cultures promote respect and tolerance through open communication, good ethical decision-making processes, teamwork, management support, clear conflict resolution guidelines, etc. These are all ways to reduce potential conflicts between people who have different views. It can result in improved collaboration among healthcare professionals, which may lead to better patient outcomes.
