Thought Exercise to Prepare for Grand Rounds:

In preparation for this session, we ask you take a moment to reflect upon the following scenario and questions:
You are caring for an inpatient adult at VPH who exhibits significant anger and hostility.  He is persistently voicing racist thoughts and slurs to faculty, trainees, and staff on the unit.
•    How does this affect you?
•    How do you perceive it affects the team members you work with?
•    How can you support your broader team?


The activity is designed to help the learner: 

1.    Discuss the broad effect of difficult to manage patient behavior on the clinical team.
2.    Describe how individual experiences and implicit biases may influence our perception and responses to challenging patients.
