Clinical Supervision in Health Professions CAM609



Timing and teaching pattern negotiated with participants


This unit is designed to provide information about the core concepts and skills for clinical supervision in the health professions.

Students in this unit will explore current literature and research on clinical supervision theory and practice, and critically review models of supervision across professions and healthcare contexts. Students will situate their own clinical supervision experiences and practice within the existing models and will analyse, reflect and plan improvements in personal supervisory practice.

This unit is suitable for health professionals working in a range of healthcare settings who are responsible, or who wish to develop, skills for supervising students and junior health practitioners.
