Abstract:
Clinical mentors are an integral part of all university health care education programs, including nursing. The role can take a variety of forms: a preceptor in a clinical setting, a clinical educator with a group in an acute care setting, or facilitator of a student's community placement. From the literature, the need for preparation and support for practitioners who serve as clinical mentors is well documented. However, these reports are largely narrative in nature rather than research based. To further explore this issue from an interprofessional perspective, an online survey was delivered to clinical mentors from a variety of health disciplines. It is based on Bandura's theory of self-efficacy supporting the link between confidence in one's ability or self-efficacy, and the actual performance of role responsibilities and behaviours. Information specific to nursing clinical mentors has been applied to a WebCT site addressing the support needs identified by this specific group in the fulfillment of their role. The data pertaining to all disciplines, along with the findings from the nursing pilot web-portal are intended to stimulate interdisciplinary discussion and collaboration toward the development of an interdisciplinary communication system regarding clinical mentorship and clinical education in general.
