185244 - Clinical Supervision Online
Supervising clinical learners is an important part of the work of most health professionals. The need to provide an appropriate learning experience must be balanced with ensuring patient quality and safety is maintained. One of the biggest challenges is doing it efficiently as well as effectively, so that the competing demands of clinicians can be managed.
Effective and efficient skills in clinical supervision are vital for all GPs who teach. Unlike other specialties, we mostly train our colleagues in our own private clinics, working alongside them while they gain competence in our profession. We need to know that those we supervise are performing well, meeting the demands of a busy general practice.
This new online course from the Melbourne Medical School recognises the time pressures on GPs and presents models of supervision that are both practical and evidence-based, fitting in neatly to the rhythm of each day.
The course also aims to provide the background, understanding and skills for clinicians to create a learning environment within which their learners thrive. Drawing upon the Melbourne Medical School’s popular award courses in clinical education, the focus is on what’s most effective in the healthcare workplace.
Whether you're between patients, on public transport, or just having a quiet moment to yourself, you can improve your skills a few minutes at a time.
