Mentors for student nurses and newly registered nurses will welcome the fourth edition of this trusted handbook on how to teach others: peers, students, patients and relatives. It is written in a user-friendly style, 'talking through' strategies with the reader. This is a practical 'How to' guide, rather than an academic treatise, with a much stronger focus on the use of competencies.
The contents have been totally revised into chapters on: . 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.
