This structured mentoring program aims to strengthen rehabilitation and mobility device services in the Pacific Island countries by developing the capabilities of their health professionals. Mentors will help their mentees:

  • Build their confidence and technical knowledge
  • Develop their networking skills
  • Grow their leadership capacity

This will be achieved by:

  • Providing them with career guidance
  • Giving insights and different perspectives on their work
  • Facilitating a non-judgemental space to ask questions

A mentor can be thought of as a coach, advisor or counsellor; they are someone who can provide advice, insight and perspective on a wide range of topics to help the mentee achieve their goals or better understand professional situations, workplace culture, leadership and goal setting.
