Summary:

Conflict is part of every work environment, including those in healthcare organizations. In the past, conflict in the workplace was regarded as dysfunctional, and representative of a breakdown in communication that would either go away by itself, or be resolved with someone winning and someone losing. Today, conflict is expected in a changing organizational environment that, when handled correctly, can result in beneficial outcomes. Conflict can be a motivator for change and growth, a medium for airing problems, and a dynamic force to prevent stagnation. Certified medical assistants (CMAs) need to be adept at recognizing different types of conflict and employing appropriate strategies to resolve them.

Objectives:

The goal of this continuing education program is to enhance medical assistants’ abilities to effectively deal with conflict on the job. After studying the information presented here, you will be able to:
  • Identify various types of conflict
  • Describe the causes of conflict in the workplace
  • Apply conflict resolution strategies to specific situations
