Professional boundaries protect the space between the health care professional’s power and the client’s vulnerability. They allow for a safe connection between the nurse and the client, based on the client’s needs. They’re integral to any therapeutic relationship.
How comfortable and confident are you in recognizing, establishing and maintaining appropriate professional boundaries in your practice? Can you identify where a professional relationship ends and a personal relationship begins? Can you navigate ‘grey zones’?
This module tunnels down to the foundations that support therapeutic relationships and the potential slippery slope of boundary drifts, crossings and violations. Stories from nurses in variety of roles and practice contexts illustrate common boundary violations. Learn strategies on recognizing and preventing crossed boundaries.
