Professor Lyndon Publishes in Journal of Obstetric, Gynecologic & Neonatal Nursing

Professor Audrey Lyndon from the UCSF School of Nursing recently published her article, "Contributions of clinical disconnections and unresolved conflict to failures in intrapartum safety"in the Journal of Obstetric, Gynecologic & Neonatal Nursing. Her article explores clinician perspectives on whether they experience difficulty resolving patient-related concerns or observe problems with the performance or behavior of colleagues involved in intrapartum care.

Professor Lyndon centers her research on understanding variation in whether maternity nurses, physicians, and other clinicians will speak up when they encounter actual or potential threats to patient safety. The role of communication, assertion, and teamwork in maintaining patient safety for childbearing women and their families in inpatient settings are of particular interest to her work.
