When I decided to make nursing my lifework, I had no idea that the profession I associated with compassionate care harbored a dirty little secret: a culture of bullying.
SYDNEY (PRWEB) June 09, 2014
Cases of bullying seem to be in the news daily. While they usually involve children and teens, bullying is not just a childhood phenomenon.
In “The Dark Side of Nursing,” Ingrid Teresa Pryde shares her experiences with bullying in healthcare—a largely shared experience that receives very little coverage. According to Pryde, “When I decided to make nursing my lifework, I had no idea that the profession I associated with compassionate care harbored a dirty little secret: a culture of bullying.”
Pryde’s book serves as a call to action and as a backdrop for the discussion of a serious issue. Supported by extensive academic research, stories taken from current news, and personal accounts, Pryde provides an exhaustive look at the topic of bullying in nursing with a compelling spirit.
With little legislation in place to combat the problem, Pryde thinks it is education that is the most important. Her book is filled with approaches to bullying and practical strategies that could be implemented in the workplace, providing real solutions to a very real problem.
