Abstract

Incivility in health care has adverse effects on patient care coordination, patient outcomes, practitioner well-being, and organizational costs. This study examined the relationships between perceived incivility and practitioners’ demographics, workplace factors, and resilience. The highest rates of incivility were reported by practitioners with 2–10 years of experience, working in skilled-nursing or long-term care, and with lowest resilience. Practices for mitigating incivility are discussed.
