Abstract

To discuss development, methods and findings from a recent study to understand what constitutes ‘expert’ mentorship.

Research aim:
To appreciate what constitutes expert mentorship and identify best practice guidance

Research questions:
What is expert mentorship and can it impact on student learning experience?
How can expert mentorship best be supported?
What are the key elements of expert mentorship that can underpin best practice?

Rationale
A direct correlation between the quality of student learning and experience in practice and the quality of mentorship has been recognised.

There is therefore a need to better understand what constitutes good practice in mentorship and how this can be fostered and promoted within healthcare organisations.
