Teaching Resource Title: Collecting relevant information about the Learner/Supervisee

Brief description:

To provide quality clinical supervision it is generally accepted that a supervisor will seek to gain a good understanding of the learner/supervisee. This may include, but not be limited to information that documents the educational history of the learner/supervisee, their specific goals, strengths, weaknesses and expectations of the supervisor-supervisee relationship. This information may be contained in an educational contract/supervision agreement. If you are interested in this topic the following journal articles may be helpful:

Teaching Resource Title: Journal article

Brief description:

Systematic review exploring collaborative models where one clinical educator supervises two or more students completing a clinical placement concurrently. The aims of the review were to investigate advantages and disadvantages of the collaborative model and to explore its implementation across allied health. A systematic search of the literature was conducted using three electronic databases (CINAHL, Medline, and Embase). Two independent reviewers evaluated studies for methodological quality. Seventeen studies met inclusion/exclusion criteria. Advantages and disadvantages identified were consistent across disciplines. A key advantage of the model was the opportunity afforded for peer learning, whilst a frequently reported disadvantage was reduced time for individual supervision of students. The methodological quality of many included studies was poor, impacting on interpretation of the evidence base. Insufficient data were provided on how the model was implemented across studies. There is a need for high quality research to guide implementation of this model across a wider range of allied health disciplines and to determine educational outcomes using reliable and validated measures

Teaching Resource Title: Successful Postgraduate Placement Experiences: What is the Influence of Job and Supervisor Characteristics?

Brief description:

This article reports on a study which examined the influence of job (placement) and supervisor characteristics on the development of professional skills and student placement satisfaction. Two samples, one of undergraduate nurses and the other of postgraduate psychology students, drawn from a number of Australian universities, completed a questionnaire package comprising measures of supervisor-student relationship quality, mentoring, placement characteristics based on job design theory, placement satisfaction and perceived opportunity for professional development through their placement experience.

Results of regression analyses indicated that task and supervisor characteristics each contributed to positive placement experience. Of the job characteristics examined, skill variety, feedback from the job (as distinct from supervisor feedback) and task significance but not task identity or autonomy influenced placement outcomes. The capacity to mentor emerged as the most important supervisor characteristic in determining professional development and placement satisfaction. The practical implications of these findings in designing placements to maximise the benefits for students are discussed.

The Gibbs Reflective Cycle

Teaching Resource Title: The Gibbs Reflective Cycle

Brief description:

This is a tool that can be used to reflect on experiences and learn from these experiences. It can be something the individual completes themselves straight after a session to bring to supervision or with their supervisor within a session. Works in a similar way to the positive critique method for feedback but by putting it in writing it really encourages the individual to take a little more time to reflect. Can also be great to help form PDA’s or learning objectives – using the outcome of an experience to form the goals of things to work on.
