Our one day course on Educational Supervision consists of talks covering the governance of education, revalidation of trainees and trainers and workshops on effective Educational Supervision, Serious Untoward Incident (SUI’s), Doctors in Difficulty (DIDs), feedback and assessment.

The workshops will give participants time to discuss the problems and challenges of educational supervision in anaesthesia in the context of the current climate and help them increase the effectiveness of the educational supervision they provide.

This event is suitable for experienced Educational Supervisors, who have completed their initial training and have gained a few years’ experience. Especially suitable for those who would like an update for revalidation.
