Description

This important resource investigates topics related to clinical education, professional supervision, and mentoring. Beyond student supervision, it discusses supervision of professionals in the work place and the emerging importance of professional mentoring for ongoing professional development. Its broad perspective is relevant to a wide range of health professions, including audiology, dietetics, nursing, occupational therapy, pharmacy, physiotherapy, podiatry, prosthetics and orthotics, radiography, and speech-language pathology. Complex theoretical material is presented in a straightforward, "person-centered" approach that makes information easily accessible and applicable to practice.
