Consultation on revised Best Practice Guidelines on Supervision (updated 05/07/18)

The Board invites feedback on the revised Best Practice Guidelines on Supervision. The guidelines have been modified with particular focus on models of learning via supervision, cultural and bicultural competence, and supervision for interns/trainees. The objectives of this review are to update and increase the usefulness of the document. The revised draft guidelines can be viewed or downloaded here. Please provide any feedback by Friday, August 3rd 2018 by emailing Anne Goodhead. The Board hope to finalise the guideline at their meeting in late August.
