Delivery method: Blended Learning
The role of the Educational Supervisor in developing tomorrow’s doctors has been firmly established and enhanced. “The New Doctor” (GMC) was published 1997; “A Guide to Registrar Training” 1998 (Department of Health) commonly known as the Orange Guide and later revised as “A Guide to Postgraduate Specialty Training in the UK in 2007” (The Gold Guide)
Effective educational supervision is at the core of Postgraduate training in all medical specialties. It follows that a clear understanding of the roles and responsibilities is fundamental to effective educational supervision. There are a number of competencies required to facilitate good educational supervision so that the trainee’s opportunities for professional development are maximised. Unfortunately a small percentage of trainees experience problems during the course of their postgraduate training. In these circumstances skilled help is required to assess and enable progress.
The new Health Education England Blended Learning Course is designed to allow Consultants involved in Educational and Clinical Supervision to perform their role in this regard effectively, enjoyably and to trainers’ and trainees’ mutual satisfaction. Clearly from the Trust’s perspective, arranging appropriate educational and clnical supervision is important for governance, risk and patient safety reasons.
