At its core healthcare is relational. Attachment is the study of relationships. There are universal strategies of attachment that are activated under stress, that have been categorised as secure and insecure. Medical intervention will likely activate secure or insecure attachment behaviours. This webinar will provide an overview of attachment theory and its possible application to paediatric nursing as it relates to the child, caregiver/parent, and nurse.

In this video learning activity, you will:

  • Gain an understanding of attachment theory and the features of secure and insecure attachment
  • Gain an awareness of how secure and insecure strategies of attachment may present in a child receiving medical care and his/her caregiver
  • Reflect on your own potential strategy of attachment and how this may impact on the nurse-patient relationship
  • Reflect on the role of the paediatric nurse as a secondary attachment figure / a secure base for child patients and their families

This learning activity is one hour in duration. 1 hour of active learning = 1 CPD hour
