What’s the Problem?!? How to Resolve Conflict @ Indy.Code() - Indiana Convention Center
Mar 29 @ 1:00 pm – 5:00 pm
What's the Problem?!? How to Resolve Conflict @ Indy.Code() - Indiana Convention Center | Indianapolis | Indiana | United States

Conflict is everywhere. With your users you’re fighting for reasonable requirements. With your infrastructure team you’re fighting about deployments and what you can do. You’re even in disagreement with your fellow developers about the right way to implement the latest feature. Most of us would admit that we don’t always resolve conflicts as easily as we would like. Come learn the skills to quickly and easily navigate the difficult waters of conflict. Learn how to keep your cool while stating your needs and how to get others to listen to you. Prepare for a different experience as you’ll do exercises to teach you the skills you need to be an expert conflict negotiator.

Development managers don’t have a place to send their developers to get soft skills – by providing the soft skills and technical skills developers need, we can capture more of the conference going developers.

  • Identify the factors that lead to conflict
  • Create an environment for dialogue
  • Select strategies to minimize conflict

Improving Communication During PICU Interprofessional Rounds to Support Family-Centered Care @ NTI 2017 - George R. Brown Convention Center
May 23 @ 2:30 pm – 3:00 pm
Improving Communication During PICU Interprofessional Rounds to Support Family-Centered Care @ NTI 2017 - George R. Brown Convention Center | Houston | Texas | United States

Clear, consistent information about the plan of care presented during interdisciplinary rounds, is important to patients and their families.  This is particularly essential in the high-stress environment of the pediatric intensive care unit, yet it is equally important in all inpatient and outpatient encounters.  Simply including family in interdisciplinary rounds is not sufficient to support the understanding that is necessary to provide the best outcomes for patients and increased patient/family satisfaction.  The implementation of patient/family-centered interdisciplinary rounds is a nurse-driven, evidence-based process utilizing teach-back with substantial impact.  Attendees will have a clear outline for implementation of patient/family-centered rounds in any healthcare environment.

Attendees will be able to:

1. Identify the relationship between effective communication with patients/families and patient outcomes
2. Analyze the impact of interdisciplinary rounds on patient/family, patient outcomes, and evaluation of quality of care
