Description

Attitudes are of crucial importance in nursing. Attitudes help us to understand how people perceive issues and processes in care and determine what they deem important, good, relevant and appropriate. We should understand attitudes if we are to provide collaborative, patient-centred care; however, they are poorly understood. This article enables the reader to examine attitudes and their constituent beliefs and values. It explores the function of attitudes, considers how they are formed and reflects on the process of attitude change, examining how persuasion can be used to enable individuals to revisit behaviours that seem problematic or less effective.

Objectives

This module aims to enable you to explore your understanding of attitudes, how they affect professional care situations, and their significance for behaviour and helping others to think in new ways. While it is important for nurses to respect individual rights, there is an onus on the nurse to promote more positive attitudes, for example in relation to healthy lifestyle, risk management, and effective and efficient ways of working.

On completion of this course you will be able to:
Outline how attitudes are formed and why they may be resistant to change.
