Regular student supervision training has continued through the COVID-19 pandemic with SQRH Clinical Educators finding some increased participation due to the online format.
Both public and private allied health providers have given feedback that the fortnightly 1.5 hour “Supercharge Your Supervision” sessions are informative and accessible, especially during pandemic travel restrictions in the first half of the year.
Rural health professionals who supervise students want to be able to provide high standard supervision and for their students to gain the most out of their placement.
SQRH Clinical Educators developed the training around a number of topics including facilitating reflective practice, understanding learning and teaching styles, managing under-performing students, providing effective feedback and difficult conversations.
Clinical Educators will repeat the series of workshops in the second half of 2020 and anyone interested is encouraged to contact SQRH to register interest.
Health providers are encouraged to make contact with SQRH if they would like these sessions tailored to their specific needs, for example delivered to small or large groups, weekly or fortnight sessions or a half day workshop either online or face-to-face once COVID-19 restrictions ease further.
