Course Framework of Advanced Mentorship Competences

QualMent

The development of relevant and high-quality skills and competences is the horizontal priority that QualMent project answers, by developing the Clinical mentors’ competence model and the Course of Advanced Mentorship Competences for clinical mentors. This course will empower clinical mentors with high-quality skills and competences needed to perform their role and at the same time fill the gap, as there is no systematic approach in developing and implementing the quality courses offering mentors’ competences to the nurses in clinical environment in EU. This field is of very high relevance, since all study programmes in the nursing field must be developed according to the EU directive (2005/36/EC and 2013/55/EU) demanding that the half of all contact hours of each study programme are done in the clinical environment as clinical practice and mentored by clinical mentors. Additionally, the QualMent aims to develop Mentoring guidelines which will offer clear and simple instructions to be used in the daily clinical practice of mentoring.
