LATERAL VIOLENCE

The theme this year does highlight a serious issue from the viewpoint of students: bullying and lateral/vertical violence in clinical.

First off, what is lateral or vertical violence?

Well, in the literature, lateral violence in nursing is defined in many ways, however it is most often used as a synonym to describe intraprofessional bullying. This includes registered or practical nurses and sometimes nursing students; however, when there is an hierarchic nature or imbalance of power, this is often further defined into vertical violence. For example; vertical violence could be between a nurse and nursing student; a nursing instructor and a nursing student; an employed student nurse and a floor manager, etc. Whereas lateral violence is nonspecific to an power imbalance and includes bullying between peers; i.e. nursing student and nursing student.

I'm working on a couple informational leaflets I hope to distribute soon that you can share with your members.

As well as some exciting CONTESTS!!!!! Coming soon!

I hope planning is going well, please let me know if you need any help with ideas for events. I am more than willing to help brainstorm ideas that will help your chapter successfully celebrate Nursing Students!

VIOLENCE LATÉRALE & VERTICALE

Le thème de cette année souligne un problème grave du point de vue des étudiants: l'intimidation et la violence latérale / verticale en clinique.

Tout d’abord, qu’est-ce que la violence latérale ou verticale?

Eh bien, dans la littérature, la violence latérale en soins infirmiers est définie de nombreuses façons, mais elle est le plus souvent utilisée comme synonyme pour décrire l'intimidation intra professionnelle. Cela inclut les infirmières autorisées ou auxiliaires et parfois même les étudiants en soins infirmiers. Cependant, lorsqu'il existe une nature hiérarchique ou un déséquilibre du pouvoir, celui-ci est souvent défini davantage comme une violence verticale. Par exemple; la violence verticale pourrait se produire entre une infirmière et une étudiante en soins infirmiers; une enseignante et une étudiante; un étudiant infirmier employé et un responsable d'étage, etc. La violence latérale plutôt, n'est pas spécifique à un déséquilibre des pouvoirs et comprend l'intimidation entre pairs; comme entre étudiant et étudiant.

Je travaille sur quelques brochures d'information que j'espère distribuer prochainement et que vous pourriez partager avec vos membres.


Ainsi que des CONCOURS excitants !!!!! Il s'arrive bientôt!

J'espère que la planification se passe bien, s'il vous plaît laissez-moi savoir si vous avez besoin d'aide avec des idées pour des événements. Je suis plus que disposé à aider à trouver des idées qui aideront votre chapitre à célébrer avec succès les étudiants en soins infirmiers!
