Scenario definition;

One particular instance where the nurse’s and
organization’s values conflicted involved
treating a terminally ill cancer patient. The
patient had advanced colon cancer, and as a
result of the illness’s advancement level, the
survival chances were very low.

Scenario definition

The patient had 2 options;

Pain relieving medication

Surgical operation- 20% survival chance
and quality of life would be
compromised.

Cause of conflict

The nurse preferred the quality of life the
patient had presently and was deeply
concerned about the surgical intervention’s
impacts. As a result, the nurse did not
support the surgical move. On the contrary,
the hospital institution insisted that it was
dedicated towards safeguarding life and
ensuring all measures were taken so as to
save its patients’ lives.

Effect on Patient Outcome and
Nurse’s Engagement

The conflict impacted significantly on the
nurse’s engagement. Since the nurse was
not in full support of the move taken by the
hospital, she went along with it but was not
entirely dedicated to this move. As a result,
her engagement levels were entirely
affected. The nurse was not dedicated
towards following through the pre-surgical
patient care. This made the patient’s
condition to worsen (Kelly, 2011).
