To begin communicating with a sufferer of schizophrenia you must approach the patient with a clear head yourself and not be angry or upset at all as negative feelings being displayed will only relay onto the client.Language used when communicating is also important, for example if a person is playing their music too loud in a communal area, ask them “can you play your music through your iPod please?” rather than “turn that off, it’s too loud!” that way you are reinforcing the auditory distraction for them but not cutting it off completely.Verbally you must convey language that is simple and to the point while non-verbal communication you must maintain eye contact with the individual although this may be difficult if the person is sufferi...

Summative assessment is about making a judgement of whether a nurse has learned enough to become competent (Bradshaw, 1989).This could remove anxiety on the student’s part about “passing” and perhaps allow time to explore formative aspects of the assessment.Even where the student is more senior and capable I would still like to have some element of direct observation to justify my assessment.I would now see feedback as having to be based on a sound judgement based on facts in order to be helpful for the nursing student.I think growing as a mentor would involve becoming skilled at encouraging learning during assessment while giving feedback and passing a student or not.
