Mentoring a Brighter Future for Pharmacy

7 March 2023
“Whole life mentoring” is the highest form of personal development, and encompasses advanced communication and relationship-building strategies. Mentoring programmes must account for organizational culture and resources that can impact individuals and the entire workforce, while successful dyadic and/or group mentoring partners must avert potential pitfalls, engage in nurturing communication that builds capacity, enhance competency, promote well-being, and bolster teamwork. This digital event addresses the creation and maintenance of successful, thriving mentoring relationships from both the organization and individual levels, with attention paid toward cultivating leadership throughout education and practice, thus preparing all persons for continuous professional development.

1. Compare and contrast “whole life mentoring” versus other types of mentoring, coaching, and advising, and describe how this approach aims to further develop the pharmacy workforce.
2. Discuss behaviours, communication strategies, best practices, and ideal attitudes of both mentors and mentees involved in either formal or informal mentoring.
3. Discuss similarities and differences in mentoring persons in various sectors of the pharmacy workforce, including researchers, educators, pharmacists, and support personnel.
