Celebrating supervision

In this newsletter:
We would like to invite you to two events celebrating supervision in Victoria.

Consumer and Family Carer Perspective
Supervision Database

Peer Inside at the Centre for Mental Health Learning is excited to announce the launch of the Consumer and Family Carer Perspective Supervision Database on Wednesday 25th November from 12 pm - 1 pm on Zoom.

This database has been designed to assist:

  • consumer lived experience workers or family/carer lived experience workers to find a suitable discipline specific supervisor
  • Organisations to find a suitable consumer or family/carer supervisors for their lived experience teams
  • Workers from other disciplines (e.g social work, nursing, psychiatry) to find a suitable Lived Experience Supervisor to assist them to enhance their practice

The database is one aspect of a large, co-produced body of work involving numerous organisations, and consumer and family/carer workers. Other aspects of this work include the development of frameworks for consumer perspective supervision and family/carer perspective supervision, and the design and delivery of lived experience supervisor training for each discipline.

Emma Cadogan (DHHS) will describe how we got here, the work undertaken so far regarding consumer and family carer perspective supervision, and current projects.

Lorna Downes (CMHL) will present the database and its functions.

There will be time for questions.

Nursing Clinical Supervision Pilot Celebration

Peninsula Health would like to invite you to be a part of their exciting celebration event for the completion of the clinical supervision pilot at Peninsula Health Mental Health Service. This marks the successful completion of year 2 of the 5 year implementation of clinical supervision for Mental Health Nurses in Victoria. Clinical supervision is an important component of every Mental Health Nurse’s professional development. 

In 2018 the Office of the Chief Mental Health Nurse (OCMHN) in partnership with other stakeholders including experienced Mental Health Nurses and nurse academics developed a Framework for Clinical Supervision for Mental Health Nurses. The framework outlines the Department of Health and Human Services’ commitment to support Mental Health Nurses to provide safe and effective care through high quality clinical supervision.

As the successful pilot site, Peninsula Health Mental Health Service Director of Nursing (Mental Health) Janine Davies and Clinical Supervision Pilot Lead Stuart Wall have created a model to embed the framework for clinical supervision at an organisational level. This work is being completed in partnership with the Office of the Chief Mental Health Nurse, Centre of Mental Health Learning and the Centre for Psychiatric Nursing. This event will provide the platform to discuss key findings and recommendations from the 12-month pilot program which will inform future Victorian service implementation and the development of clinical supervision for the wider Mental Health Nursing profession.
Friday 27th November from 3 pm - 4 pm.
