Editorial Reviews

Doody's Review Service
Reviewer: Susan Lura Sanson, MEd, RT (R)(QM)(Concordia University of Wisconsin)
Description: This unique book on quality clinical supervision (QCS) is divided into three sections. The first section identifies three key issues that all supervisors need to understand if work is to be of high quality. The second section deals with how the supervisor can enable practitioners to become proficient and develop a deeper understanding of issues that affect their practice. In the third section, the authors challenge readers to look at how they can influence the practitioner to develop a level of professionalism rather than just clinical skills.
Purpose: The purpose of this book is to prepare quality clinical supervisors/instructors by offering education rather than training. It sees the intentions of clinical supervision as educating students to become members of a profession rather than just training them to be independent practitioners.
Audience: The authors have addressed this book to members of professions across Western and Oriental approaches to healthcare, and specifically it addresses those professionals who work with students.
Features: There are tasks and exercises in each unit with points to be considered by the reader. These exercises will cause the reader to examine his or her own practices, values, and beliefs. In addition, I believe these tasks would serve as excellent tools to stimulate discussion with colleagues and within the classroom setting.
Assessment: This is a wonderful book for all healthcare providers who seek to increase their understanding of professionalism and how it relates to clinical supervision/instruction. It is geared toward those professionals who work with students in the clinical setting. But any healthcare provider who is ready for individual growth and reflection on their own clinical practice, values, and beliefs will benefit from completing this book. It is a thought-provoking approach to clinical practice and clinical instruction. It will move you from a technical-rational approach to a reflective practitioner's view. A must for all clinical instructors in the healthcare environment.
