Midwifery(labor conduct) practices under Mentorship for our clinical midwifery course for two years, producing such educational results as follows :
1. Mutual understanding enables continual arid consistent instructions in accordance with individualities ;
2. Standardized instructions can be given according to each developmental stage of students ;
3. Shared understanding of the subjects and care activities, as well as constant review and evaluation, could be made good use of in their learning process ;
4. They can do practical trainings in a trustful and relaxed mood without hypertension ;
5. They can learn about the traits of an instructor-midwife such as judgement, techniques, humanity, sense of responsibility and view of midwife ; and
6. Instructors in turn can study and enlighten themselves. When it might be difficult for them to form basic human relations, however, it would be necessary to be able to change combinations when appropriate. On the other hand, a deeper intimacy tended to give rise to sense of dependency and even to highlight only the relationship between a Mentor and a student, pushing aside the interactions with other leaders and staff.
Some of the challenges ahead that we have found are to analyze Mentor-student congeniality. determine the instruction period of the Mentor system and related work shifts for the staff, and study Mentors' work load and aptitude, etc.
