The Importance of Supervision in Advanced Practice

This video explores the importance of supervision in advanced practice. High quality supervision is crucial for all trainee advanced practitioners. It supports the development of their confidence and capability, and underpins patient and practitioner safety. We visited the paediatric team at Royal Cornwall Hospitals NHS Foundation Trust to discuss their experience of advanced practice supervision. We examine how effective supervision is essential for their trainee advanced practitioners to develop into an autonomous practitioner.
