Best Practice Supervision

The role of the GP supervisor is diverse; combining the roles of educator, mentor, role model, assessor, coach and pastoral carer. GP supervisors juggle patient safety, registrar learning, and the wellbeing of their registrar, in addition to looking after themselves and the supervision team. It is therefore not surprising that GP supervisors are regarded as the cornerstone of general practice training.

While every supervisor and registrar pair is unique, and supervision must be tailored to meet the needs of the individuals and the context in which they work, there are some generic best practice principles that broadly apply.
