National Clinical Supervision Skills Initiative
Health Workforce Australia's (HWA) Clinical Supervision Support Program (CSSP) has developed a National Clinical Supervision Skills Initiative (Skills Initiative). The Skills Initiative will deliver a range of interprofessional education and training opportunities for new and existing clinical supervisors across Australia, facilitated through the Integrated Regional Clinical Training Networks (IRCTNs) in each state and territory.
The National Clinical Supervision Competency Resource – Validation Edition (the Resource) provides the foundation for the Skills Initiative by enabling the development of a consistent and transparent approach to the provision of quality interprofessional clinical supervision education and training programs.
The Resource provides three pathways for the education and training of clinical supervisors; Foundational, Intermediate and Advanced, and describes competency domains and elements, representing activity common to the Australian clinical supervision workforce.
To support the Skills Initiative, HWA established a Multi-Use List (MUL) of Education and Training Providers (Providers) with proven experience in the delivery of interprofessional clinical supervision education and training who can demonstrate alignment to the Resource.
To be considered for the MUL Providers were required to demonstrate:
- A proven ability and track record in the provision of interprofessional clinical supervision education and training across multiple settings and/or locations and/or jurisdictions.
- Alignment to Foundational and/or Intermediate pathways as outlined in the National Clinical Supervision Competency Resource – Validation Edition.
- Alignment to one or more of the Foundational and/or Intermediate domains and competency elements outlined in the National Clinical Supervision Competency Resource – Validation Edition.
- A proven ability to contextualise interprofessional clinical supervision education and training to ensure it is appropriate to the location/setting in which it is being delivered and for the skills/experience of the participants attending.
Education and training opportunities in clinical supervision may be offered in a variety of formats, including (but not limited to):
- Face-to-face workshops, seminars, short courses and/or extended courses.
- On-line workshops, seminars, short courses and/or extended courses.
- Written and/or on-line resources.
- Education and/or training in a simulated learning environment (SLE).
- E-learning modules.
- Train the trainer.
- Any combination of the above.
