Abstract: Critical care nursing necessitates specialized knowledge and skill acquisition. Because of this, intensive care units have historically hired competent acute care nurses. Due to the current nursing shortage, critical care units are now hiring new graduate nurses. In light of this trend, one way to provide effective teaching to the tasks and critical thinking involved with ICU nursing is by assigning new graduate nurses a mentor. The purpose of this study was to examine the experiences of mentees and mentors in a structured mentorship program. These perceptions were gleaned through a qualitative study using focus group methodology and a convenience sample of five mentees and six mentors. Results of this study revealed the following shared perceptions from the mentees and mentors: (1) availability, (2) sense of community, and (3) support and knowledge. Furthermore, this study supports mentorship programs as a means of professional development, education, and overall organizational ...
TY - JOUR. T1 - A longitudinal study of mentor and protégé outcomes in formal mentoring relationships. AU - Chun, Jae Uk. AU - Sosik, John J.. AU - Yun, Nam Yi. PY - 2012/11. Y1 - 2012/11. N2 - This study examined relationships between mentoring functions offered and transformational leadership as a mentor outcome and affective well-being and organizational commitment as mutual outcomes for both mentors and protégés. For this examination, we conducted a longitudinal field study by using 111 matched reports from both mentors and protégés collected at three different points in time over seven months in nine Korean companies that administered a standardized formal mentoring program. Study results showed that mentoring functions assessed at Time2 were positively associated with mentors and protégés post-mentoring outcomes at Time3 after controlling for pre-mentoring initial levels of those outcomes at Time1. Study findings also revealed that relative effects of mentoring on the mentor and ...
Background: Despite increasing recognition that mentoring is essential early in medical careers, little is known about the prevalence of mentoring programs for medical students. We conducted this study to survey all medical schools in Germany regarding the prevalence of mentoring programs for medical students as well as the characteristics, goals and effectiveness of these programs. Methods: A definition of mentoring was established and program inclusion criteria were determined based on a review of the literature. The literature defined mentoring as a steady, long-lasting relationship designed to promote the mentees overall development. We developed a questionnaire to assess key characteristics of mentoring programs: the advocated mentoring model, the number of participating mentees and mentors, funding and staff, and characteristics of mentees and mentors (e. g., level of training). In addition, the survey characterized the mentee-mentor relationship regarding the frequency of meetings, forms ...
The LAUC-B Mentor Program serves the dual purpose of welcoming newly hired librarians and helping them succeed in the Berkeley environment. The Mentor Program will pair LAUC-B members with newly hired librarians, generally outside the members own departments. Mentors will advise new librarians especially on (but not limited to) preparing review documents and getting involved in LAUC-B. The program is not intended to replace other mentoring activities that focus on professional roles and responsibilities. The mentor is an experienced librarian with a minimum of five years professional experience at UC Berkeley. The mentor should have gone through the review process and have attained career status at UCB. Mentors and new librarians are generally paired for a period of two years, but the partnership could continue for three years if the new librarian is hired at a level with a review cycle of more than two years. New librarians interested in being mentored should contact Ian Knabe, Mentor Program ...
The dissertation is an initial investigation of a peer mentoring program in a suburban high school in the southeastern United States. Additionally, the Peer Mentoring Program (PMP) study examined whether the Program improves academic performance and attendance, and decreases referrals. Utilizing an experimental design, a Participant and a Nonparticipant group were compared based on archival summative data. The Participant group met with a 10th-12th grade assigned peer mentor, while the Nonparticipant group with equal group qualifications, did not. Quantitative analysis, resultant from an independent t-test and d effect size analysis for each inquiry, with further application of the Welch t test to the attendance data and the additional Mann-Whitney U test to the referrals data, provided interpretive results. Findings revealed the increased likelihood of the PMP to improve attendance. Findings further indicated the schools Peer Mentoring Program did not improve academic performance
CiteSeerX - Document Details (Isaac Councill, Lee Giles, Pradeep Teregowda): Youth mentoring programs are an increasingly popular intervention, and although successful mentoring relationships can promote a range of positive developmental outcomes, relationships that fail can lead to decrements in a youths functioning and self-esteem. The present research develops and validates a youth mentoring relationship quality inventory, based on data from a national evaluation of Big Brothers Big Sisters (BBBS) mentoring programs (N = 347 youth). This tool can be administered to adolescents who have been assigned mentors in order to assess the quality of the relationship as it is forming and to identify dyads that may need additional support before those relationships fail. Implications of such a tool for mentoring interventions and research are discussed. Editors Strategic Implications: Reliability and validity data are presented for a measure of youths perceptions of the quality of their mentoring
In other news, this year spARO and ARO both organized mentorship programs. With a total of 15 mentors, the spARO program fosters long-term one-to-one mentoring relationships, pairing a junior faculty member with a postdoc, a postdoc with a PhD student, or a PhD student with a potential PhD applicant. Six mentees were matched to mentors. The ARO program organized focus groups for drop-in mentoring, with around eight faculty mentors and forty mentees. Next year, the two mentoring programs will combine their effort to present a single, integrated mentoring program to facilitate organization, publicity, and participation.. Next year, spARO will organize the writing of a two-page, journalistic-style review of highlights at the 2013 ARO MidWinter Meeting to be published in JARO. Written entirely by trainees, this commentary will cover the themes and discussions of various symposia without disclosing unpublished data. It will voice a unique perspective of the exciting research presented at the 2013 ARO ...
Mentoring Program. The Mentoring Program offers a continued accompaniment for selected participants of the Summer School in eight pairings. Each pair will consist of a partner from Eastern Europe and one from Western Europe. They will be matched based on skills and topics they wish to work on; a common language between the matched partners is a requirement. The program runs from September 2014 to February 2016, and will be accompanied by the program coordinators.. The Mentoring Program is intended to offer an additional line of support to LGBT Christian leaders in Eastern Europe. The program will give the participants an opportunity to discuss questions of group dynamics and leadership, theology and faith, social pressure and activities to address public opinion, or anything else that is important to both partners in the pair. The type of relationship wanted is an accompanying one.. The Mentoring Program starts with an initial meeting in Samara the day after the Forum of Christian LGBT groups ...
The first meeting will probably last about an hour. After that each meeting will probably last 30 - 40 minutes. Meetings should take place around every six weeks. It is a good idea to define the end point either during the first or second meeting. The mentorship programme should not take longer than 6 months. Only if both the mentor and mentee agrees to continue their mentorship, they can arrange for a longer period of mentorship. ...

No matter how much training mentors are given before they embark on the mentoring journey, most mentors, understandably, will feel some anxiety when they meet their mentees for the first time.. The mentees might also test the commitment of the mentors during the early stages of the mentoring relationship, especially if the young person has had experiences of being let down by other adults in his or her life.. The key is for mentors to be non-judgmental and to enter the relationship with no expectations and no specific agenda. Its best for the mentors to place themselves in their mentees shoes and try to understand the world of these young people, allowing them to dictate the pace of the mentoring journey. The mentors, as adults, will need to drive the early stages of the relationship until it becomes clear that the mentee might want to suggest activities etc. Be patient and let the relationship develop over a period of time. Some relationships will have a quick connection, while others, often ...

Downloadable! This paper presents evidence from a natural-experiment which evaluates the effectiveness of a student mentoring program. The mentoring includes several compulsory, scheduled, faceto- face appointments between a mentor and a student in the first study year. All mentors are graduated and employed by the institution. For the evaluation, I use the fact that the mentoring is only offered to students in an economics and management program, whereas it is not offered to students in an industrial engineering program. However, students in both programs take the same classes and write the same exams in their first study year. I find that the mentoring program significantly decreases the failure rates in the first semester exams.
Breast cancer survivors Bridgette Correale and Diane Harrington-Bowers agree that unless youve been there, its hard to understand the impact that a cancer diagnosis will have, which is why both Bridgette and Diane jumped at the chance to be peer mentors in a program that would allow them to help newly diagnosed women who were facing treatment decisions.. I knew that every time I went to the doctors office I was so uptight, Bridgette says. I knew I had to help people. I thought, As soon as I get myself feeling mentally and physically well, I have to do something. Bridgettes doctor provided her with the opportunity when she asked Bridgette if she would like to participate in the Voices of MammoSite program, which matches newly diagnosed women considering MammoSite targeted radiation therapy with a network of peer mentors. Because Bridgette had had such a positive experience with the five-day targeted treatment, which she underwent directly after the lumpectomy to remove a 0.9 cm tumor from ...

Intervention by peer mentors has a statistically significant effect on improving glucose control in African American veterans with diabetes, says a Medical News Today article based on study by researchers at the University of Pennsylvania and the Philadelphia VA Center for Health Equity Research and Promotion. In the study, 118 African American veterans aged 50 to 70 years old with persistently poor diabetes control were randomly assigned to 3 groups-usual care, peer mentoring, and financial incentives. Patients receiving usual care were notified of their starting levels and recommended goals for HbA1c. Those in the mentor group were assigned mentors, matched by age and sex, who previously had poor glycemic control but now had good control. Mentors participated in hour-long 1-on-1 training, including motivational interviewing techniques, and were informed that they would receive $20 per month if the patient confirmed that they had spoken at least once a week. Patients in the financial incentive ...

1) What does mentorship mean to you? Has this definition changed as the result of attending the camp? I believe mentorship describes a necessary relationship between the highly skilled and the ambitiously curious. Mentors provide a base of knowledge for their mentees to learn from and inform their own decisions and awareness. Mentees are a reminder to their mentors that intentional thought and active discussion related to a craft is a constant process that can only improve their own critical thinking and skill set. This relationship is the keystone of progress for an industry or the philosophy of a craft, and only serves to better the members of that community as a whole. I dont believe my definition of mentorship was change while in the process of this camp, but rather propped up and confirmed.. 2) In what ways do you feel mentorship is significant to the craft of mountain guiding? Mentorship, in my mind, is the defining characteristic of an educational process which spans the broad reaches ...

In order to continually improve the program, questionnaires will be given to all mentors and mentees. This formative evaluation will consist of questions leading away from standard survey responses. Questions should be open-ended and keep respondents from giving a yes or no answer. Though more laborious and difficult to compile, this type of questionnaire leads to the honest answers that allow the management team to assess what improvements are necessary to make the program more successful. These questionnaires will be sent out twice in the span of a mentor or mentees participation. The first will be a concise series of questions on how to improve the participants involvement for the remainder of the contract. This will be the management teams attempt to reach out to those mentors or mentees that are not having success in the program, but for one reason or another are not contacting the management team for further assistance or intervention. Rather than wait until an exit evaluation, the ...
Pairing adolescents with college student mentors keeps kids healthy and fit. A program pairing healthy young adults with urban middle school students helped the adolescents adopt healthy habits, active lifestyles and a healthy weight, according to a new study from the University of Maryland School of Medicine. The study, published August 2 in the journal Pediatrics, found that linking African American, inner city adolescents in Baltimore with one-on-one mentorship from college students prevented the schoolchildren from becoming overweight for at least two years after the mentorship experience. Researchers found the adolescents ate fewer snacks and desserts, and engaged in active play more often. The rate of overweight/obesity in the group declined five percent.. The home- and community-based intervention a program called Challenge! shows promise as a way to have a major impact on childrens lives, according to the studys lead author, Maureen M.

Strengthening the quality of laboratory diagnostics is a key part of building global health capacity. In 2015, the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC), the Southeast European Center for Surveillance and Control of Infectious Diseases (SECID), WHO European Regional Office (WHO EURO) and American Public Health Laboratories (APHL) collaborated to address laboratory quality training needs in Southeast Europe. Together, they developed a quality assurance (QA) mentorship program for six national laboratories (Laboratories A-E) in five countries utilizing APHL international consultants. The primary goal of the mentorship program was to help laboratories become recognized by WHO as National Influenza Centers (NICs). The program aimed to do this by strengthening influenza laboratory capacity by implementing quality management systems (QMS) action steps. After 1 year, we evaluated participants progress by the proportion of QMS action steps they had successfully implemented, as well as the value of
TY - CPAPER AB - CCLI: Evaluation of a Mentoring Program for Delivering Engineering Content to Calculus StudentsBackgroundCurrently, a significant effort is being made to increase persistence in engineering. Researchindicates that most students that leave engineering do so in their first year. Students that leave intheir first year most commonly cite calculus as the reason [1]. To address this problem aprogram has been implemented at Anonymous University which uses engineering content toreinforce the importance of and student interest in calculus concepts [2]. The program isconstructed to be easily implemented with minimal cost and no modifications to the existingcalculus courses. To accomplish this, small group discussions facilitated by a diverse group ofpeer mentors is used to deliver the engineering content.One of the issues with implementing such a program is that there is relatively little researchfocusing on the experience of the mentors.

Sepsis is complex because outcomes are not only life and death. While survival occurs in approximately two-thirds of patients, other patients can die with a course of disease that has different hallmarks. Our simulation attempts to capture these outcomes.. Survival: The pathogen is destroyed and the patient s damage levels return to near zero. This outcome usually results from a low rate of pathogen growth and a higher collagen production rate.. Persistent Infection: Pathogen levels and damage levels continue to rise unchecked by any other process. This occurs with a high rate of pathogen growth and a high rate of collagen production.. Aseptic Death: Pathogen has been cleared away, but damage continues to persist. This is a non-abating inflammatory response. Usually, aseptic death comes from low pathogen and collagen growth rates.. Septic Death:Pathogens and damage have gone out of control. Infection and inflammation continue to proliferate unchecked. The model shows this result when both the ...

Addressing the psychosocial needs of vulnerable children and youth is viewed increasingly as a priority of humanitarian programs, particularly in Africa, where the scale of the problem necessitates community-based solutions. This quasi-experimental study tested a model of adult mentorship and support to improve psychosocial outcomes among youth-headed households in a rural area of Rwanda. Two rounds of data were collected from youth who served as heads of their households. Following the baseline survey in 2004 (n = 692), an adult mentorship program was implemented among half the sample. A follow-up survey was conducted after 18 months of intervention exposure (n = 593). Through regular home visits, mentors developed a stable, caring relationship with youth in their community living without an adult caregiver. Each mentor was assigned 2-3 youth-headed households located within their own community to visit at least once a month for 2-3 hours in the home. Over an 18-month period, 156 trained adult ...

Single women and families with children are rapidly growing segments of the homeless population (NCH, 2009b). Homeless women generally report a lower quality of life, and are at a greater risk for various physical and mental health issues than their housed counterparts (NCH, 2009a). Mental illness, including depression and anxiety, impacts 20 to 25% of the homeless population in the United States, compared to 6% of the general population (NCH, 2009b). Social support can serve as a mediating factor between undesirable life events and depression (La Gory, Ritchey, Mullis, 1990). Unfortunately, the social support system among homeless individuals is sometimes eroded by homelessness itself, or the circumstances leading to homelessness. Additionally, because homeless individuals rarely have access to traditional treatment services for anxiety and depression, there is a need for different and innovative depression interventions. The purpose of this project was to implement and evaluate a peer mentor
by Herman Beavers. It is perhaps too common to think that holding the hand of a toddler while crossing a busy street is an apt metaphor for the mentoring relationship, especially when it comes to fostering undergraduate research. Beyond the obvious miscue of infantilizing the student, approaching mentoring relationships with this mindset has the unintended consequence of communicating a lack of faith in the mentees abilities. In order to avoid falling into this pattern, Ive identified three tenets for mentoring undergraduate research that I hope will lead to a satisfying experience for both mentors and mentees. At a time when Penn seeks ways to be more inclusive, mentoring is perhaps the most efficacious way both to ensure that we identify students possessing the capacity to do independent research and that in doing so, we help them realize their fullest potential. In a departure from the standard approach, I will begin with the third tenet and end with the first. And so the third tenet of ...

That validation, that people who are in charge know what youre doing, makes it that much easier to advocate for you with the deans and the Provosts Office, Hancock said. When chairs dont take that kind of personal interest in junior faculty, thats when you get an experience where people will leave or go elsewhere.. When it comes to the more traditional Political Science department, Hancock said her experience has been different. After arriving at Yale three years ago - two years after a formal mentoring program had been put into place in the department - Hancock said she had to ask the chair of the Political Science department to be paired with a senior faculty member and then had to choose her own mentor because the chair was not familiar enough with her work to do it himself. She said she thinks her white male counterparts in the department had an easier time finding mentors.. Experiences can also vary depending on rank. African-American Studies professor Emilie Townes said her ...

NASAs new virtual mentoring program is helping girls get excited about careers in science and technology by working one-on-one with agency professionals. Twenty-one girls in grades 5-8, representing 12 states from New York to Hawaii, have completed a pilot mentoring program called NASA Giving Initiative and Relevance to Learning Science (NASA GIRLS).. NASA GIRLS is the first program to pair up girls with NASA female mentors from the [email protected] program using online video programs such as Skype and Google Chat. Participants were selected from more than 1,600 applications.. NASA GIRLS allows young students to work directly with women who successfully have established STEM careers, said NASA Deputy Administrator Lori Garver. The program uses technology familiar to the young generation and allows NASA to share its mission in regions where there may not be a NASA center.. The mentoring sessions consisted of lessons in science, technology, engineering and math (STEM). The last session ...
As part of their research into impact of violence on womens learning and vocational choices, Reilly and co-author Miranda DAmico, a professor in the Concordia Department of Education, conducted in-depth interviews with 10 women who had experienced intense childhood abuse and were enrolled in an undergraduate program when interviewed.. All but one participant had been mentored at different stages in her life. Reilly and DAmico found that the timing of womens mentoring was contingent on the impact the abuse had on their sense of identity. Over the course of the interviews, four themes of mentorship emerged: fantasy mentors, mentors as mirrors, mentors as nurturers and supporters, and mentors as embodiments of a particular profession. Although the researchers caution that these themes should be viewed as atypical, they enrich the understanding of mentoring for women marginalized by violence and demonstrate the malleable nature of mentorship. Mentoring in its various guises clearly played a ...
Adolescents with solid organ transplants have poorer outcomes than adults, and do not respond as well to post-rejection treatment. In addition to well-recognized declines in individual health-related quality of life, premature graft loss creates considerable health and economic burdens. High nonadherence rates among adolescents are believed to contribute majorly to rejection, premature allograft dysfunction and failure. Studies suggest that a telephone-based peer mentoring approach, with texting and e-communication, is a promising, practical means to promote medication adherence in adolescent solid organ transplant recipients. The studys main objectives are 1) to determine the efficacy of peer mentoring to improve medication adherence and health-related quality of life vs. usual care in adolescents and young adults with solid organ transplants, and 2) to determine the mechanisms through which peer mentoring impacts medication adherence and health-related quality of life ...
