    St. Colmcille's Hospital

    St. Colmcille's Hospital

    Overview

    St. Colmcille’s Hospital involves a dispute between a hospital employee and a representative of the board of management. This simulation is designed for use as an experiential learning exercise in teaching mediation to third level students (intermediate / advanced level). 

    St. Colmcille’s Hospital is a useful exercise to explore more advanced concepts in negotiation and mediation, such as the effects of emotions and values on the outcome of the negotiation, and unequal power dynamics. This simulation may also be used to demonstrate the role of a mediator in dispute resolution, particularly regarding challenges to preserving mediator neutrality which may arise.

    Teaching notes include General Instructions, Confidential Instructions for Colm O'Donnell, Confidnetial Instructions for Anna O'Meara and Confidential Instructions for the Mediator.
