Workplace cultures, which are underpinned by psychological safety, offer an environment for authenticity, honesty, and most importantly, safety. Employees feel that they can share their concerns, disclose their non-conventual opinions, and admit to mistakes without fear of punishment or judgment. Growing evidence supports the association between psychological safety and excellent outcomes for employee wellbeing, efficacy of teams, and most importantly, quality of care for the people in recipe of health services. One forum which has potential to foster and promote psychological safety is clinical supervision.
Clinical supervision offers a facilitated reflective thinking space. It can be provided in groups or individually and involves the safe exploration of clinical experiences for the purpose of support and learning. There are many approaches to clinical supervision, and it is not a prescriptive intervention; however, there are some key principles which have been shown to enable its effective implementation and impact for students and nurses throughout the life span of their career.
Join this webinar to learn more about clinical supervision and key principles for embedding this into practice as a staple in nursing worldwide. You can also participate in the conversation on social media by using #ClinicalSupervision and #CSSEG.
