The publication provides guidance to support the continued development of health and social care professionals working in palliative care.
The authors note that: “Mentoring sits within the context of human and personnel development, indeed it provides the environment in which both professional and personal development can occur.
“Mentoring along with well-planned clinical supervision is also a means to develop leadership capacity.”
The Mentoring Guide is divided into three sections:
- overview of mentoring, including mentoring in palliative care specifically
- the mentor and mentee relationship
- guidance on resources contained in the publication.
The Guide includes sample documentation, such as mentoring agreements, planning checklists for both parties, a mentoring worksheet and an individual development plan.
Download the Mentoring Guide free of charge from the AIIHPC website.
