MENTORING IS FUNDAMENTAL TO PATIENT SAFETY (NMC 2010)
Students need high quality mentoring to develop into safe, competent and compassionate nurses and allied health professionals. Practice-based mentors are therefore crucial to help maintain the delivery of high-quality care.
The Masterful Mentoring Game is built around the NMC Standards to Support Learning and Assessment in Practice (NMC 2008). It is designed to support mentors engaged in their annual updates by promoting in-depth discussion and encouraging effective reflective learning. The game is also relevant to allied health professionals as described in the Health Care Professions Council Standards (HCPC 2012).
The game explores all aspects of mentorship and encourages communication, interaction, teamwork and reflective practice. And it's fun - so participants learn effortlessly and effectively.
Each game contains 200 cards arranged into 9 subject groupings which address the following themes:
- Evidence based practice
- Assessment and accountability
- Creating a learning environment
- Context of practice
- Establishing effective working relationships
- Facilitating learning
- Evaluation of learning
- Sign-off mentor
