The importance of the community practice teacher is increasing with the expansion in primary care. Universities around the country have developed courses for practice educators to provide definitive training for that role – there are currently few texts that support these courses directly. This book aims to redress this by covering eight specialist areas of community practice: district nursing, health visiting, school nursing, children’s community health nursing, community nursing mental health, community nursing learning disability, general practice nursing and occupational health nursing. The emphasis is strongly on practical issues rather than theory and each section considers practice-based dilemmas and offers appropriate debate.Content: Chapter 1 Setting the Scene: Concepts of Specialist Practitioner and Specialist Practice Mentor (pages 1–11): Judith CanhamChapter 2 From Policy to Practice (pages 12–20): Joanne BennettChapter 3 Maintaining and Developing Quality and Equity within Higher Education Programmes (pages 21–30): Mary DunningChapter 4 Learning Approaches in the Practice Context (pages 31–49): Judith Canham and Sue MooreChapter 5 Reflective Practice (pages 50–61): Joanne BennettChapter 6 Clinical Supervision for the Specialist Practitioner Student (pages 62–75): Peter WilkinChapter 7 The English National Board Higher Award: A Strategy for Change (pages 76–84): Joanne BennettChapter 8 Assessment of Specialist Community Practice (pages 85–101): Judith CanhamChapter 9 The Evidence and Research Base for Practice (pages 103–110): Joanne Bennett, Christopher Wibberley and Linda DackChapter 10 General Practice Nursing (pages 111–117): Sarah MattocksChapter 11 Community Mental Health Nursing (pages 118–124): Maureen DeaconChapter 12 Community Learning Disability Nursing (pages 125–131): Peggy CookeChapter 13 Community Children’s Nursing (pages 132–139): Carole ProudChapter 14 Health Visiting (pages 140–150): Joanna BatemanChapter 15 Occupational Health Nursing (pages 151–158): Jan RoseChapter 16 District Nursing (pages 159–165): Anne RobinsonChapter 17 School Nursing (pages 166–172): Jennie HumphriesChapter 18 Being a Specialist Practitioner Student (pages 173–179): Carole WillsChapter 19 Being a Mentor (pages 180–187): Marjorie CavanaghChapter 20 Navigating Practice: Challenges and Opportunities (pages 188–200): Joanne BennettChapter 21 Concluding Comments (pages 201–202): Judith Canham and Joanne Bennett
