2020 Professional Development Program for Doctors


The aim of this workshop is to develop strategies for supervision, focussed for example on difficult challenges, such as students with poor insight; trainees with inadequate knowledge, junior doctors with unhelpful interaction skills.

The clinical workplace is a setting with high activity that often inhibits extensive reflection and calm deliberation. Starting with a video-based example of how things might go wrong, both for staff and for the patient, we will look at the literature on supervision, identify approaches to the management of the poor performer, and work through some exercises analysing real life challenges in supervision.
