background
Background
  • 2012 previous mentoring project at Bega Valley Health Service
  • BN curriculum stakeholder meeting at UOW Bega campus was a catalyst for forging new relationships
  • Previous relationship between UOW School of Nursing, Midwifery and Indigenous Health and Bega Valley Health Service
  • 2013 ICTN Local Funding Grant round was foundational in revisiting the mentoring project
  • Criteria supported an expansion of ideas for new mentoring relationships to be established
project aims
Project Aims
  • Enhancement of collaborative partnerships between local health district, private health facility and the University of Wollongong within the regional area - Bega Valley
  • Development and capacity building of the nursing workforce through contribution to mentorship in a rural and/or remote region – Bega Valley Health
  • Development of a mentorship program across 2 health care facilities (public and private) involving transitioning students; undergraduate students; and the nursing workforce using a practice development framework to enable participants to guide the development of interventions
  • Development of mentorship guidelines arising from the project using modified nominal group technique (for mentors and mentees)
  • Evaluation of mentorship from the perspective of the mentees and the mentors through a modified nominal group technique
  • Establishment of mentorship in the healthcare facility to support future mentoring activities, thus actioning culture shifts in health care and providing opportunity for considering other supervision practices
  • Resources based on mentoring provided for all participants (reference list; mentor and mentee guidelines)
mentoring project
‘Mentoring’ Project
  • Timeline: January 2013 - May 2013
  • 4 sessions across this time at UOW Bega campus
  • Sessions held in the morning for Mentees and in afternoon for mentors (lunchtime shared session)
  • Practice development principles to inform sessions and the activities to support effective mentoring relationships
practice development
Practice Development
  • Key concepts underpinning practice development:

Stated by McCormack et al. as sustainable person-centred cultures; enabling facilitation; authentic engagement; blending personal qualities and creative imagination with practice skills and practice wisdom; active learning; transformations of individual and team practices and corporate strategy (2009 p. 94)

  • Concepts are translated into nine principles to guide practice development activities

conclusion
Conclusion

The project has facilitated and strengthened collaborative partnerships between local health district, private health facility and the University of Wollongong within the regional area - Bega Valley.

Through the project, development and capacity building of the nursing workforce has occurred through participation in the sessions as well as the establishment of mentoring relationships across health care facilities (public and private) involving transitioning students; undergraduate students; and the nursing workforce.

The explicit and deliberate use of practice development with the focus of working with both mentors and mentees has enabled participants to critically explore the practice culture of mentoring in healthcare organisations in order to bring about change that can be recognised as value in systems redesign. Sustainability of mentoring relationships in nursing as a change in practice culture will be a future measure.
