Becoming the Peacemaker: A Mediator’s Strategies for Conflict Resolution In Clinical Settings

Summary of presentation:  Patient Advocates are often called upon to act as problem-solver between their clients, family, and medical professionals.  This webinar will help participants develop some necessary skills to use in these tight situations. The key to resolving any dispute is active listening, allowing all the participants to have a voice, and finding common ground among the parties to open resolution options.  While similar to mediation, conciliation is less formal, intending to help the parties reach a consensus while restoring their relationship. There are tips on becoming a more effective listener, dealing with anticipatory grief, and separating the positions from interests and the people from the problem.
