Cover image for lecture: Workplace Turf Wars: What's Really Happening?

Lecture Overview

Turf wars are often associated with territory or status and can sabotage positive outcomes for patient care. They can also make the work environment unpleasant. Respecting each other’s roles, scope of practice, and responsibilities without drawing lines in the sand is important. This session will illustrate how interprofessional collaboration gets the best results. It will also give you insights into your own capacity for communicating appropriately with others.

Jane Stanfield is a health service improvement coach. She comes with 30 years’ experience in healthcare, half as a clinician and half in health administration, support and coaching. Having had a brush with burnout herself and several close family members receiving healthcare, her focus is on bringing compassion back to healthcare for all involved. Her current use of neuroscience and mindfulness at work enables healthcare providers to work with their own mind, emotions and behaviour to influence their culture in a way that will energise and motivate them as they manage the safety and reliability of their care and its focus on the patient—whilst caring for themselves. Jane is currently coaching several nurse leaders and runs workshops on leadership, shaping cultures, wellbeing, and communication and patient safety (CAPS). Her most recent professional development personally is in LEAN thinking – reducing waste and improving flow in healthcare….because waste is disrespectful to people!

Good for EN and RNs. Everyone feels that way at times and I push through it and try and show that I am approachable and competent and warm and friendly
