Clinical Supervision

The benefits of clinical supervision have been well documented with evidence suggesting it offers a process of professional support and learning in which staff are assisted in developing their practice through regular discussion with experienced and knowledgeable colleagues. It helps to promote personal and professional development in a structured supportive relationship and is increasingly recommended as a means of supporting professional practice. It is believed to be fundamental to safeguarding standards, developing professional expertise, and improving the delivery of quality care. Clinical supervision fits within a clinical governance framework in helping to ensure better outcomes for service users and enhancing healthcare practice. It contributes to the development of a more articulate and skilled workforce which in turn impacts positively upon LUHFT objectives 

The Standards of Proficiency for Registered Nurses (NMC 2018) states that registered nurses must “take responsibility for continuous self-reflection” and “contribute to clinical supervision and team reflection activities to promote improvements in practice and services”. 

The Health and Care Professions Council (HCPC), the regulatory body for all Allied Health Professionals (AHPs) recognises the purpose and value clinical supervision has in supporting and improving registrant's practice. 

The Practice Development Unit (PDU) offers Registered Nurses and Allied Health Professionals the opportunity to attend a one - day Clinical Supervision Workshop that will provide a clear understanding of clinical supervision across the health care sector by learning about theoretical models and how clinical supervision impacts practice. It explores the key elements of clinical supervision and reflective practice, identifying limitations and barriers, and provides the opportunity to review the various models & approaches to clinical supervision, incorporating individual, organisational, and professional perspectives. 

The workshop is suitable for novice supervisors as well as those with experience within their professional field of practice, who are looking to improve and extend their practice, consolidate their learning, and reflect and evaluate upon their own level of knowledge
