  • Comment

’This book is essential reading for those learning to mentor and for those already in a mentorship role it will help to update your practice.’

Title: Mentoring and Supervision in Healthcare (3rd Edition)

Author: Neil Gopee

Publisher: Sage 

Reviewer: Simon Browes, clinical strategy and development lead, NEMS Community Benefit Service Limited

What was it like?

This is the third edition of a very-well established text. It brings together the practice of mentorship and supervision with sound discussion of the theory and research evidence.

Updated, this book includes discussion of recent policy such as the Francis Report and Compassion in Practice.

Useful and relevant to modern nursing and education practice, there is an accompanying website with teaching resources for lecturers, expanded case studies and journal articles made available for students.

What were the highlights?

Taking a practical approach throughout, the book includes activities, which encourage readers to challenge their thinking and example tools for mentors to use in practice. Contemporary practices are explored, such as coaching, supporting students with difficulties, and those with disabilities and special educational needs.

Although a nurse by background, the book takes an inter-professional approach, increasingly relevant to health professions education.

Strengths & weaknesses:

This has long been seen as a key text for providers and students of mentor and supervision courses. It is user-friendly and brings together theory and practice. The case studies help bring this to life and help the reader to put themselves into the roles of student and mentor.

Who should read it?

An established and updated resource for academics, this book is essential reading for those learning to mentor and for those already in a mentorship role it will help to update your practice.
