Description

This learning module discusses the role of nurses and nurse leaders in the prevention and resolution of patient stigmatisation. The multiple nurse, patient and environmental factors that contribute to difficulties in nurse-patient interactions are outlined. The antecedents and consequences of patient stigmatisation are discussed and leadership strategies for counteracting and preventing patient stigmatisation are explored. The reader is encouraged to reflect on the role of patient stigmatisation in nursing practice and consider ways to promote better care of stigmatised patients.

Objectives

Aims:
The aim of this module is to present nurses and nurse leaders with strategies to prevent and resolve patient stigmatisation. It explores the antecedents and consequences of patient stigmatisation with reference to the literature. It also explores the characteristics that distinguish professional nurse-patient interactions from social interpersonal interactions. A brief review of professional nursing ethics and Orlando’s (1990) theory of the deliberative nursing process is undertaken. Consideration is given to leadership strategies to resolve nurse-patient conflict. Finally, proactive strategies to prevent difficult nurse-patient encounters are explored.
After completing this module you should be able to:
Analyse the interactional factors that contribute to difficulties in nurse-patient encounters.
Examine patient stigmatisation and its consequences.
Outline the professional and ethical mandates to prevent and counteract patient stigmatisation.
Identify leadership strategies to promote patient and nurse dignity when patient stigmatisation has occurred.
Describe techniques used to prevent patient stigmatisation.
