Do you mentor student nurses and/or newly registered nurses? This is a trusted handbook on how to teach others: peers, students, patients and relatives. Using a 'talking through' strategy this is a practical 'How to' guide, rather than an academic treatise, with a much stronger focus on the use of competencies.
Sections focus on these key areas: · How people learn · How to teach · How to use competencies in teaching · How to support learners · How to assess teaching & learning
· Learning objectives begin each chapter · Sets teaching within the context of nursing and education · Aids the teaching of reflective practice · Activities and exercises reinforce learning · Cartoons illustrate significant points.
