    Clinical Supervision for Registrars and Fellows 

    Effective clinical supervision can bring benefits not only to practitioners but also to the organisation and its clients when it fulfills the aim of improving and developing clinical practice. (Bond and Holland 2010)

    What is Clinical Supervision? (either in a group or individually)

    It is the provision of

    • Support and guidance
    • Reflections on practice, examining issues and complexities
    • When appropriate feedback (on any matters related to work/organisationally)
    • Educational development in the context of child and family practice

    Facilitator: Sarah Jones worked at the hospital for 15 years in the mental health service, and now remains engaged in an independent capacity in staff training, clinical supervision consultations and staff wellbeing.


    • Clinical supervision sessions are created to be flexible enough in order to provide a space for exploring and reflection on practice.
    • RCH sessions are offered in an safe environment and structured format in ressies, in order to promote reflecting and examining practice.
