In addition to relational conflict and negative behaviours, for those of you who are studying this course in preparation to become a nurse mentor there are other types of professional conflict that can arise.
Activity 6 Insights into potential conflicts within the mentoring role
Watch the interview with Amy Johnson, an experienced mentor who identifies some of the other types of conflict that she has encountered in her role.
Write a short summary of the types of conflict that are described.
If you are studying towards an NMC mentor qualification, here is a final activity relating to this week’s learning that you might undertake in the practice setting in order to develop evidence for your portfolio, in the following domain:
Arrange a meeting with your own supervisor to discuss the types of conflict described by the experienced mentor.
Share your summary of the types of conflict described (you might do this before the meeting to give your supervisor the opportunity to consider the issues).
Discuss with your supervisor the actions or approaches you feel it would be appropriate to take for each of these conflict types.
Add these actions or approaches to your summary as a reminder of safe, effective and professional mentoring practice.
