This resource has been created to support all registered healthcare practitioners develop relevant knowledge and skills for participating in clinical supervision. In particular, it has a focus on the restorative component of supervision.
The Clinical Supervision resource comprises four units.
Unit 1 is for both supervisors and supervisees.
Unit 2-4 are for those undertaking the supervision role (supervisors).
Unit 1 is designed to provide supervisors and supervisees with an introduction to clinical supervision; what it is, the purpose, processes and potential benefits.
Unit 2 focuses on the process of clinical supervision; the models and frameworks practitioners, preparing to facilitate clinical supervision, can use to help structure their practice.
Unit 3 presents information relating to the skills that are used to facilitate clinical supervision in more detail, including theories, approaches, skills and techniques for effectively facilitating reflective practice with supervisees.
Unit 4 aims to develop knowledge in relation to clinical supervisors’ leadership role in promoting professionalism and person-centred, safe and effective care.
