Clinical Supervision Online
- : 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.OVERVIEW
The Clinical Supervision Online course 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 Excellence in Clinical Teaching (EXCITE) award courses in clinical education, the focus is on what’s most effective in the healthcare workplace.
Effective and efficient skills in clinical supervision are vital for all clinicians who teach. Patient care is our top priority but we also want to give our learners an excellent training experience.
This new online course from the Melbourne Medical School recognises the time pressures on clinicians and presents models of supervision that are both practical and evidence-based, fitting in neatly to the rhythm of each day. 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.
Clinical Supervision Online is designed for all clinicians who teach and/or supervise learners at any level.LEARNING OUTCOMES
