About the Author

Neil Gopee is currently employed as Lecturer at the Faculty of Health and Life Sciences at Coventry University, and has previously also been Associate Lecturer at the Open University for mentorship and Post-Graduate Certificate in Education courses. Gopee′s role as external examiner at various higher education institutions in his subject areas has further broadened his insights into the two subject areas that he teaches and researches: first, teaching, learning and assessment in relation to undergraduate and postgraduate students; and second, leadership and management in healthcare settings.

Gopee first qualified as a nurse a few decades ago and worked in general surgical nursing before moving on to complete the registered mental health nurse course. Through his nursing career, a combination of clinical experience in primary care and general intensive care nursing has also been complemented by attendance at numerous professional development short and long courses, including various workshops on writing for publication, and also completing his doctorate in continuing professional education at the University of Warwick.

By the turn of the millennium, as nurse education programmes became more established in UK universities, this opened up further authoring opportunities. Mentoring and Supervision in Healthcare book, the first edition of which was published in 2007; this book is the fifth edition, with the title and content adjusted. Along the way, Gopee also worked with SAGE to write the Leadership and Management in Healthcare book (up to its third edition), and Practice Teaching in Healthcare and Leading and Managing Healthcare textbooks (published in 2022). He has also written chapters in edited books and had a range of peer-reviewed articles published.
