Fundamentals of Clinical Supervision
This course is about the clinical supervision of qualified health professionals. It provides you with the opportunity to think about your own role as a supervisor or supervisee and how you can enhance the supervision relationship.
Clinical Supervision in Practice
Throughout the course you will explore opportunities and challenges in supervision in your role as a supervisor and identify strategies for improving outcomes for yourself, your supervisee and their clients. If you are new to supervision or have never had any formal training in being a clinical supervisor, you should complete the Fundamentals of Clinical Supervision course first.
Advanced Clinical Supervision
This course builds on the Clinical Supervision in Practice course and explores supervising clinical supervisors at an advanced level.
