Supervision Essentials for Dietitians

Connect, Reflect and supercharge your skills

You may have heard of supervision, but not sure exactly what it is, who it's for and why it's so important for Dietitians.

We are still in our infancy in recognising supervision as an essential component of ethical and client-centered practice. A support framework which takes good care of us, AND supports us in elevating our skills with clients, groups and communities.

Here, ten experienced Dietitian Supervisors have collaborated to bring you their experiences, wisdom & reflections for us through a variety of platforms including interview, video, audio and writing.

Clinical supervision is a support mechanism for practising professionals that promotes personal and professional development within a supportive relationship.

In this process we can share clinical, organisational, developmental and emotional experiences with selected professional(s) in a secure and confidential environment. This can promote high ethical standards and develop clinical expertise, and address client issues in an objective manner. This process will lead to an increased awareness of other concepts including accountability and reflective practice

Grab your pen and paper as we dive down, and hope to answer the most common questions you have about supervision. Thanks for being here!
