Supervision for Dietitians
Clinical supervision is a support mechanism for practicing health professionals to help promote personal and professional development within a supportive relationship.
In this process, we share clinical, organisational, developmental, and emotional experiences with selected professional(s) in a secure and confidential environment. This helps promote high ethical standards and develop clinical expertise, and address client issues in an objective manner. This process will lead to an increased awareness of other concepts, including accountability and reflective practice.
The supervision space is somewhere for you to reflect, share, learn and grow in skills, self-reflection and confidence as a Dietitian. It is preferable that your Supervisor has done some specific training in Supervision, and it’s essential that they are well supervised themselves. You may find that you connect better with some colleagues than others, so it's important that you feel confident in the relationship you choose. Supervision may either be individual (1:1) or in a group setting, in-person. or online (via a secure platform).
