Previous Article Next Article This week’s review and lettersA true lesson in nurse teachingSupporting Learning in Nursing Practice: a guide for practitioners Edited by: Sally Glen and Pamela Parker Published by: Palgrave Macmillan ISBN: 1403902925 Price: £17.99 This is a comprehensive and practical text, detailing the journey ofteaching practice and education since 1989. It allows the reader to identifyand consider the processes of change that nurse teaching has undergonethroughout the years, and is a valuable tool for any nurse undertakingassignments/ research, looking for guidance on nursing education progress. The main body of the text is the most informative section, discussingenquiry-based learning. This is an adapted learning tool that is considered tofulfil the learning needs of the nursing student in the 21st century – whetherthey are learning to practice as novices or specialists. One chapter is dedicated to its application, while further chapters describeresponsibilities of supervisors, dealing with conflict, negotiating learningcontracts and identifying learning experiences for the student. This book will provide guidance for the link lecturer. It demonstratesworthwhile models already being implemented in certain NHS trusts, for thefuture development of the lecturer’s role in a team approach to studentteaching and learning. The practitioner is able to fully appreciate the roleand extent of support that is to be gained from the lecturer working with andas part of the clinical team. Some may argue the worth of this text in the OH setting. Yet, our NHS trustOH department has become a new part of the curriculum for the teaching ofnovice nurse students, and has subsequently taught about nine students over thepast year. The book doesn’t refer to the teaching of students in the OH setting, but itis an extremely valuable tool in demonstrating the most advantageous approachto teaching the students to our team, while understanding their needs and ours.This book is well planned in its content and layout, and was consequentlyeasy to absorb. I would recommend it to members of clinical and teaching staff for its clearand helpful advice in supporting students throughout the learning process. This book would also be ideal for students as it provides a succinct reviewof nursing education – past, present and future – and lends itself to a betterunderstanding of the learning process. By Lesley Baxter, an OH nurse adviser at Nottingham Occupational Healthdepartment WRS risk assessments are importantCarole Spiers makes some important points when she reminds us of theimportance of carrying out work-related stress (WRS) risk assessments(Occupational Health, December 2003), and I agree with her entirely. On a practical note, however, some managers recoil at the thought of dealingwith psychological issues, which is probably understandable. The risk is thatOH practitioners will then be deluged with requests to carry out WRS riskassessments on top of an already full workload. On the other hand, managers and supervisors are (or should be) veryconversant with job requirements. This knowledge can be used alongside trainedassessors (such as safety or HR professionals, or safety representatives) tosystematically analyse the potential sources of stress in any job, and putplans in place to minimise them. The expertise of OH professionals is more usefully used in contributing tothose WRS risk assessments where particular individuals are known to be morevulnerable. This process is then no different to, say, doing manual handlingassessments for individuals at greater risk. Having applied this approach in many organisations from many differentsectors, I have found that a more pragmatic use of all resources is possible,with greater job satisfaction for all concerned – including the OH advisers.
