Abstract or Summary

Clinicians are often required to supervise health professionals undergoing training, but are not always trained themselves to undertake this leadership role. We will provide practical suggestions to improve these skills, both individually and across a service. Co-presented by a multi-disciplinary panel, we will discuss: • A real life example of setting up group clinical supervision across children's services, including an outcome evaluation of this initiative • A framework for dealing with trainees in difficulty, one of the most challenging parts of supervision • Supervision as a career long learning process for all health professionals, regardless of experience. This session is suitable for anyone who supervises trainees, including senior nurses, RACP basic and advanced training supervisors, clinical psychologists, and other health professionals.
