For the first time at the Annual Scientific Conference (ASC) we have two specific sessions for Supervisors as part of the Surgical Education Program. We would love as many supervisors as possible to attend. Virtual attendance is available.
The sessions are:
- Wednesday 12 May, 9.00 am – 10.30 am (AEST) - Identifying and addressing underperformance: how the supervisor and team can support learners.
Presentation by invited international speaker Professor Jennifer Cleland followed by a panel discussion with questions from the floor.
- Wed 12 May, 4.00 pm – 5.30pm (AEST) – Consensus Statement Workshop – Supporting Supervisors.
This workshop will be involving supervisors in the development of a consensus statement to outline the support needed by our supervisors. The consensus statement will be used to advocate on behalf of supervisors. If you are interested in contributing to this work please register your interest in attending with Debbie Paltridge – Deborah.firstname.lastname@example.org – to receive preworkshop information.
What's new on the Supervisor Hub
Two new documents have been added under the Supervisor Framework tab
- Mapping document –to assist Supervisors to identify resources to assist them in developing the competencies within the Supervisor Framework.
- Self Assessment form – to assist supervisors to self-assess their achievement of the individual competencies.
We appreciate and value the work you do in educating and training our future surgeons. These pages have been put together to assist you to find resources to help you do this important work. There is access to important policy documents related to SET training, College contact numbers should you have a specific question, information regarding professional development for Supervisors, and links to resources to assist you.
We are committed to making these pages useful for supervisors so if you have any suggestions for additional content please contact the RACS Principal Educator, Debbie Paltridge at Deborah.Paltridge@surgeons.org.
We also acknowledge in 2020 supervisors spent a significant amount of time in COVID meetings, therefore we have added a COVID meeting activity, of 10 hours in Clinical Governance (Category 2), which meets this requirement.
