Book Description

11 April 2011 0857024191 978-0857024190 Second Edition
This practical and accessible book examines the knowledge base, skills and attitudes required for mentoring in the context of healthcare.

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.

Mentoring and Supervision in Healthcare is a core text for mentor preparation courses in nursing, midwifery and across the healthcare sector. It supports learning and ongoing professional development for all healthcare professionals.

More About the Author

Neil is currently employed as a Senior Lecturer in Health and Life Sciences at Coventry University and until very recently he also worked as an Associate Lecturer for the Open University. His role as external examiner at various Higher Education Institutions in his subject areas has also broadened his insights into the two subject areas that he teaches and researches in:
* learning, teaching and assessment (under- and post-graduate)
* management and leadership in healthcare settings.

Neil qualified as a nurse in the 1970s and worked in general surgical nursing for a year before moving on to complete the 'Registered Mental Health Nurse' course. Throughout his nursing career, a combination of clinical experiences in primary care and general intensive care nursing was also supplemented by attendance at numerous professional development short and long courses, including various workshops on writing for publication and completing his doctorate in continuing professional education at Warwick University.

Neil's first peer-reviewed article was published in 1991, based on his then nurse tutor role. When nurse education programmes became a part of university provision in the 1990s, this further opened up authoring opportunities for nurse lecturers, and he negotiated with Alison Poyner, commissioning editor at SAGE publications, to write the Mentoring and Supervision in Healthcare book, the first edition of which was published in 2007. Along the way, he also worked with SAGE publications to write Leadership and Management in Healthcare and Practice Teaching in Healthcare textbooks. Neil has also had chapters published in edited books, and a range of peer-reviewed articles.



Product Description

Review

'An excellent resource for experienced and new mentors and preceptors....This second edition encompasses developments in health care and the recent standards and competencies for mentors and supervisors, with advice on their implementation in clinical practice. There are interactive segments to apply the theories and principles discussed in a range of clinical settings...Case studies link to life in clinical practice, highlighting the challenges that may occur. Gopee provides frameworks for mentoring in practice and encourages the reader with thinking points, and the application of theory to practice. This is a must for mentor preparation courses. It supports learning and ongoing professional development to enhance mentoring skills for all healthcare professionals' -

About the Author

I am currently employed as a senior lecturer in Health and Life Sciences at Coventry University, and have until very recently also worked as Associate lecturer for the Open University. My role as external examiner at various Higher Education Institutions in my subject areas has also broadened my insights into the two subject areas that I teach and research: (1) learning, teaching and assessment (under- and post-graduate), and (2) management and leadership in healthcare settings.

I qualified in 'Adult Nursing' in the first place and worked in general surgical nursing for a year before moving on to complete the ‘registered mental health nurse’ course. Through my nursing career, a combination of clinical experiences in primary care and general intensive care nursing was also supplemented by attendance at numerous professional development short and long courses, including various workshops on writing for publication and completing my doctorate in continuing professional education at Warwick University.

My first peer-reviewed article was published in 1991 based on my then nurse tutor role. The 1990s when nurse education programmes became a part of university provision, this further opened up authoring opportunities, and I negotiated with Alison Poyner, commissioning editor at SAGE publications, to write the Mentoring and Supervision in Healthcare book, the first edition of which was published in 2007. Along the way, I also worked with SAGE publications to write Leadership and Management in Healthcare and Practice Teaching in Healthcare textbooks. I have also had chapters published in edited books, and a range of peer-reviewed articles.

5.0 out of 5 stars Essential Reading 13 Nov 2012
Format:Paperback|Verified Purchase
This book is essential reading for any qualified nurse undertaking mentorship of students. It is well written and easy to read. The book identifies different ways that students learn thus giving the reader guidance on how to facilitate learning in different environments and situations. The content is well referenced and I love the different activities which can be utilised by an individual or by a group,thus helping to meet the NMC requirements of face to face contact during mentor updates. The author is actively involved in teaching mentorship and therefore I feel the book is an authentic tool to assist mentorship and supervision of learners.
