Editorial Reviews

Doody's Review Service
Reviewer: Charlotte A. Carlley, MSN, EdD, RN (Indiana University School of Nursing)
Description: This book is a must for staff development educators in any setting. It examines the expanding role of the staff development specialist in today's changing environment and projects the future role and importance of the position.
Purpose: The editor builds upon her first edition in 1992 to take the staff development position to a level equal to that of clinician, administrator, researcher, and educator. She believes that the product of staff development is and should be competence.
Audience: This book is written specifically for clinical staff development educators in any field in healthcare and focuses on competency assessment and how to build programs and processes that are designed to measure competency. The editor is a nationally recognized educator and author and writes with knowledge, clarity, humor, and practical applications. She has assembled a most credible group of contributors, well prepared in their respective specialties and recognized by their peers.
Features: I like the use of the terms "clinical staff development specialist" and "staff development specialist" when addressing the role of the individual responsible for staff development. The role has evolved to a higher level than that of providing orientation and in-services, and if quality patient care is its mission, it should become a high priority for any institution.
Assessment: Reading this book shows how far "in-service" has progressed from the early 1960s to now. How exciting the work of the development specialist is and how important the impact the individual in the position has in fulfilling the mission of the organization!

Booknews
Reflecting shifts in the nursing profession and the health-care industry generally, reorganizes the 1992 edition from a problem- solving approach to a consideration of what nurses and others may do to produce competent clinical care providers in a variety of settings. Covers staff development practice, assessing and developing competence, and the operation and administration of staff development. Another addition are first-person accounts at the end of each chapter. Annotation c. by Book News, Inc., Portland, Or.
