Students must be working in a clinical area relevant to the module content
This module is intended to help you to develop your understanding and ability to implement clinical supervision in practice by discussing a range of literature on the topic of clinical supervision, emphasizing the importance of reflection in practice. The module focuses on the development of supervisory skills, allowing the practitioner to explore their own strengths and needs in accessing and facilitating clinical supervision. A range of theories in relation to models and approaches to clinical supervision and their effectiveness in practice are explored during the module. The student will be expected to engage with a range of activities in practice to support the distance learning, work-based element of this module, utilizing critical companions and seeking the views of other practitioners to increase their knowledge and understanding of key concepts.
The structure of the module will assist the student to critically analyse the concept of clinical supervision and how it is sited against other quality improvement and assurance mechanisms and supervisory frameworks within the workplace. Skills development of the supervisee and supervisor will be focused upon, along with analysis of setting up systems of clinical supervision within an organisation.
Using a distance learning approach, the students will have a series of on-line materials to work through, feeding back through postings on the asynchronous discussion board on the module e-learn site. Tutorial support is available through e-learn, email or telephone and students are expected to develop a support network and learning community through the use of the discussion board to reduce isolation and enrich the learning experience. Students are expected to take responsibility for organising their own study time during this module to ensure that they are able to meet the demands of distance learning.
