Revised and updated to take account of the latest developments in healthcare, the text explores theories and research on mentoring by analysing their strengths and weaknesses. To complement his analytical style, Neil Gopee has introduced more interactive features to emphasise the application of theories and principles to various clinical settings. He also draws on the most recent standards and competencies for mentors and supervisors, and examines how they can be applied in day-to-day mentoring and clinical practice activities.
Key features include:
- Comprehensive content - examines learning styles; different learning environments; evidence-based care; principles of assessment; the mentor's leadership; evaluation of teaching.
- Practice-oriented - case studies offer links to 'real-life' and the chapters provide effective frameworks for mentoring in practice.
- Interactive - activities and think points encourage the reader to explore and apply concepts to their practice and roles.
- Up-to-date - firmly based on current knowledge in the field.
