Mentoring in Nursing and Healthcare – A Practical Approach
Author: Kate Kilgallon, Janet Thompson
Written primarily for mentors, this excellent resource covers the up-to-date standards for proficiency drawn up by the Nursing and Midwifery Council and the Health Professions Council.
A range of practical activities and online learning resources complement the theory.
The process of mentoring is described, including what a mentor is and is not, what the role involves and practical help on teaching and assessing students in clinical practice. Readers are first asked to answer questions on the accompanying website. This provides feedback on strengths and weaknesses.
Each chapter focuses on a different aspect of mentorship. These include the mentor-student relationship, experiential learning, learning styles, teaching theories, assessment and reflective practice. There is also a useful section on career development.
The format is straightforward and practice-oriented, with case studies, reflective exercises and activities throughout. The interactive online resources include mini tests, weblinks and PowerPoint slides.
This practical guide will enhance a deep level of understanding and knowledge of mentorship. It is an invaluable resource on mentorship in nursing and health care.
