Clinical Supervision in the NHS

Who Would Benefit

All Clinicians who have not received formal tuition in the subject or who are in need of a refresher.

Course Description

The role of the clinical supervisor is a critical one in the achievement of standards and curriculum throughout the NHS.

The Clinical supervisor has a different role to that of the educational supervisor and within this programme those areas will be highlighted. There will also be clear definitions around the main purposes and responsibilities of the position. With Doctors having appraisals each year it is imperative that Clinical Supervisors understand their role in ensuring that a Doctors appraisal, the resulting PDP, their job –plan and focus on Continuing Professional Development (CPD), is maintained. The Clinical Supervisor also has to ensure and encourage Clinical Audit and Multi-source feedback for each Doctor. This course is directed at those doctors who are preparing themselves for the role, or for those existing clinical supervisors who want to up-date or refresh their knowledge.
