Abstract

Conflict is common in the intensive care unit (ICU). Experiences in critical care are often intense, involving high stress and high stakes, but learning to appropriately manage a circumstance that might otherwise lead to conflict should be a measure of personal success. Many examples come to mind: intra-team conflict, conflict between the ICU team and consulting services, and conflict between the ICU team and the patient/family unit, to name a few.1,2 This editorial addresses the issue of conflict in the ICU, including how to recognize it, how to manage it, and how to turn conflict into an opportunity for improvement.
