A Practical Guide to Staff Development: Tools and techniques for Effective Education is a comprehensive book and CD-ROM designed to help directors of education, staff development, and human resource personnel prepare clinicians--who are traditionally not educators--to be effective trainers. The CD-ROM includes tools that your new trainers can use to document and assess their training methods, as well as plan activities based on the different learning styles of their audiences. In addition, A Practical Guide to Staff Development can be used by every discipline in your facility with samples of missions, goals, and visions that they can modify to suit their educational needs. You need a resource that will help prepare the novice staff educators in your facility, as well as revitalize current educators with strategies for adopting new technology and teaching techniques. By sharing the innovative ideas in A Practical Guide to Staff Development, you will improve your entire facility's ability to deliver all types of critical education, enhancing your staff's ability to provide exceptional care.
