Could osteopaths benefit from supervision?
Sheila Work, practicing osteopath in Tring, Hertfordshire, will be asking this question.
Topics to be covered
The freedom to discuss anything in a safe, confidential and non-judgmental environment and consider an alternative way of managing issues such as:
- Patients you find difficult
- Relationships with colleagues you are uncomfortable with
- Work–life balance
- How personal issues can affect your work
- Are you heading for burnout?
A short video will be shown to demonstrate how a supervision session works between an osteopath and a supervisor.
Notes from a personal interview with a GP colleague will be shared which reflects on the supervision structure for GPs working in the NHS. She discusses the resistance and successes she has found on becoming a supervisor herself.
References to literature and research on this subject will be presented.
The session will last 90 mins and meets the following sections of OPS:
- A7 You must make sure your beliefs and values do not prejudice your patients’ care
- D7 You must uphold the reputation of the profession at all times through your conduct in and out of the workplace
- D11 You must ensure that any problems with your own health do not affect your patients. You must not rely on your own assessment of the risk to patients.
