Clinical Mentorship in Acute Clinical areas
As the focus of a portion of global funding is now moving toward more acute hospital based care versus disease specific ( i.e. TB or HIV ) treatment, hospital based clinical mentorship is becoming more common. In the US we have a history of Clinical Nurse Specialist as one model, where nurses work assigned to one unit/ward or clinical area and work provide unit based education. Are there any good models used for hospital based nurse mentorship that have been used and evaluated in more resource limited settings? Is the model different from the past clinic or community HIV treatment mentorship models that have been used in the global nursing community?
