Extended Session: Managing and working with difficult behaviour

A doctor’s work is always challenging. Working in the context of the current pressures of the NHS makes it even more so. The typical daily pressures on an individual’s resources, such as energy, patience, kindness, concentration etc. are even more profound in the current extremely high-pressure environment.


It is not unusual in such circumstances for individuals to respond in ways that not only make them difficult to work with, but which also potentially put themselves (their reputation, their effectiveness in the team etc.) and their progress or career at risk. Moreover, it may also be that their patient care is at risk. Understanding personality and behaviour and how pressure might impact their performance and result in them being perceived as a ‘doctor in difficulty’ is what my session at this workshop will focus on. It will also draw your attention to how to manage the individual concerned so that potential problems are detected early and don’t escalate.
