• Conflict resolution for student midwives

      Steen, Mary; University of Chester. (Elsevier, 2011-03)
      Poor working relationships, aggressive behaviour and bullying within the midwifery profession are a common phenomenon, with student midwives reporting that they have either experienced or witnessed this within their clinical or educational environments. There is a need to address this unpleasant phenomenon and one way is to introduce conflict resolution strategies. This article describes and discusses how the Start Treating Others Positively (STOP) model has been adapted to develop an educational workshop to assist student midwives in enhancing and developing skills to manage conflict in their working and learning environments.
