Masterclass 1: Supervising for ethical practice in rural and remote settings

Allied Health Practitioners working in rural and remote practice face challenges to their ability to fully comply with their professional ethical requirements, such as managing multiple relationships, confidentiality, professional isolation, operating within limits of professional competence, and managing interagency relationships and shared caseloads.

A key supervisory skill is to be able to guide supervisees through these challenges and to evaluate the supervisee’s competence in this area in the context of their rural and remote practice. This can be challenging for supervisors who may also be managing these dilemmas in their own practice, or who may not live in the same community as the supervisee, and may not have a clear understanding of the ethical dilemmas faced by their supervisee.

This Masterclass will provide supervisors with a framework to navigate these challenges.

Masterclass 2: Critical reflection and planning for feedback in supervision

Reflective practice is considered to be an important skill for effective clinical practice. A key supervisory skill is to be able to include opportunities for the supervisee to engage in critical reflection, as well as the supervisor to model critical reflection of their own practice and supervision. In order to bring critical reflection into the supervisory relationship in a systematic way, it is important to have feedback processes in place that can be planned for and that help support reflective practice.

This Masterclass will provide supervisors with processes and skills that will help plan for feedback and support reflective practice.
