Editorial Reviews



"All you ever wanted to know about mentoring and preceptorship but were afraid to ask!"

"The readable, common sense approach, coupled with clever interweaving of relevant literature, makes it an equally valuable text for ward area, college library and individual purchase"

Journal of Inter professional Care

Reviews of the second edition:

"Most wards should carry a copy, and all libraries. This is a good-value book that relates well to clinical practice."Professional Nurse

"This is a welcome second edition of a valuable resource book for those involved in support roles in clinical practice, including practitioners, managers and educationalists." Journal of Nursing Management

From the Back Cover

Introducing learning support systems into clinical practice is a major issue for today’s health professional. As practitioners take on the demands of lifelong learning, educators and employers have a responsibility to ensure support systems provide the right stimulus for role learning and the acquisition of professional skills.

Mentoring, Preceptorship and Clinical Supervision: A Guide to Professional Support Roles in Clinical Practice will stimulate fresh thinking about what we need and can gain from professional learning support. It challenges professionals to recognise the value of support in promoting trust and collegiality within the diverse settings used to promote learning in health care.

This book places support high on the health care professions’ educational agenda by:

  • Explaining why professional learning support is so essential to the development of safe practice in health care

  • Documenting and evaluating the history and evolution of relevant support concepts

  • Presenting new, research-based evidence as to the conditions which best enable practitioners to learn from experience in clinical practice

  • Clarifying the all important overlaps and distinctions between support roles, so that practitioners are clear about the qualities, skills and preparation required

Practitioners providing support, educators and academics studying support dynamics, policymakers and employers who set standards for professional health care education and practice, will all find the book a helpful resource in redefining the important issues facing practitioners today.

Format: Paperback
Thanks for this book. I had a paper to prepare while doing my MSN in Nursing Administration and this book was used for reference. Much needed and insightful information was received. We definitely need to be there for our young nurses. They need mentors to help them with the transition.
