    1. 1. Reflections and the Roles we Play: Interprofessional Supervision Shelly Russell-Mayhew, Ph.D., R. Psych. Division of Applied Psychology University of Calgary March 9, 2007
    2. 2. Agenda <ul><li>Definitions and ‘Lingo’ </li></ul><ul><li>Barriers and Disadvantages </li></ul><ul><li>Facilitators and Advantages </li></ul><ul><li>Experiential Activity </li></ul><ul><li>What might interprofessional supervision look like? </li></ul><ul><li>Recommendations and summary </li></ul>
    3. 3. “Interprofessional” Definition <ul><li>“Occasions when two or more professionals learn with, from and about each other to improve collaboration and the quality of care.” </li></ul><ul><li>Centre for the Advancement of Interprofessional Education (CAIPE, 1997, revised 2002.) </li></ul>
    4. 4. Supervision <ul><li>“A formal process of professional support and learning which enables practitioners to develop knowledge and competence, assume responsibility for their own practice and enhance consumer protection and the safety of care in complex situations.” </li></ul><ul><li>Department of Health (1993) UK as cited in Bailey 2004. </li></ul>
    5. 5. Overarching Theme in ‘Collaboration Literature <ul><li>Involves considering MORE THAN ONE PERSPECTIVE </li></ul>
    6. 6. Lingo <ul><li>‘Clinical’ supervision is now called ‘work based’ supervision as it seems to be more inclusive of a number of professions (Bailey, 2004) </li></ul>
    7. 7. Lingo continued <ul><li>Mentor – the professional who facilitates learning and supervises and assesses students in the practice setting (nursing) </li></ul><ul><li>Facilitator (community nursing) </li></ul><ul><li>Clinical supervisor (physiotherapy) </li></ul><ul><li>Practice teacher (social work) </li></ul><ul><li>Fieldwork educator (occupational therapist) </li></ul><ul><li>Peer reviewer (mental health practitioners) </li></ul><ul><li>Tutor (clinical education ward) </li></ul><ul><li>Placement educator (proposed by Emerson, 2004 as neutral) </li></ul>
    8. 8. Interprofessional Supervision <ul><li>Two or more people from different professional groups to achieve a common goal of protecting the welfare of the client </li></ul><ul><li>Townend, 2005 </li></ul>
    9. 9. KEY FEATURES OF ANY ‘INTERPROFESSIONAL SUPERVISION” DEFINITION <ul><li>1) There is an INTERACTION between (at least) two people, </li></ul><ul><li>2) the ‘supervisor’ is attempting to support the ‘supervisee’ in becoming better at helping people </li></ul><ul><li>3) the process of supervision is about a relationship within which education, support and quality control can happen </li></ul><ul><li>4) there are two or more professional groups represented in the interaction </li></ul>
    10. 10. Barriers <ul><li>Power </li></ul><ul><li>Professional stereotypes </li></ul><ul><li>Time/caseload issues </li></ul><ul><li>Interprofessional rivalries and turf wars </li></ul>
    11. 11. Disadvantages <ul><li>Role differences and misunderstandings </li></ul><ul><li>Different training level (perceived professional status) </li></ul><ul><li>Absence of shared theory and language </li></ul><ul><li>Absence of empathy for organizational issues </li></ul><ul><li>Anxiety </li></ul><ul><li>Fear of revealing weaknesses </li></ul>
    12. 12. Facilitators <ul><li>Trust </li></ul><ul><li>Working alliance b/w supervisor and supervisee </li></ul><ul><li>A developmental approach to improving practice </li></ul><ul><li>Common documentation systems for team </li></ul><ul><li>Joint supervision policies </li></ul><ul><li>Role clarity </li></ul><ul><li>A common approach to practice </li></ul>
    13. 13. Advantages <ul><li>Different perspective </li></ul><ul><li>Increased creativity </li></ul><ul><li>Wider knowledge </li></ul><ul><li>Prevents complacency </li></ul><ul><li>Critical thinking </li></ul><ul><li>Interprofessional supervision can contribute to the transfer of learning from training into practice </li></ul>
    14. 14. Summary <ul><li>Both interprofessional collaboration and supervision are poorly understood (double trouble) </li></ul><ul><li>Interprofessional supervision is one of the most confused issues in team organization and management </li></ul><ul><li>Interprofessional supervision is just beginning to be explored </li></ul><ul><li>Theoretical models of interprofessional supervision need to be developed </li></ul>
    15. 15. The Roles We Play <ul><li>Experiential activity using scenerio </li></ul><ul><li>Volunteers play a role </li></ul><ul><li>(need 9 people) </li></ul><ul><li>Observers watch to share observations </li></ul>
    16. 16. THE ROLES WE PLAY: Interprofessional Supervision Experiential Exercise <ul><li>Your workplace has become a part of an exciting new initiative that includes a new model of supervision for student trainees. As part of your commitment to this initiative, all students will be trained in service delivery as part of a multidisciplinary student team supervised by a team of interprofessional supervisors. </li></ul><ul><li>A student and supervisor have approached you about interprofessional supervision asking: </li></ul><ul><li>“ How does this really work?” </li></ul><ul><li>“ Why is it important for my professional development?” </li></ul><ul><li>“ What will my professional association say about my supervision being with someone from another profession?” </li></ul><ul><li>Because of the importance of giving both the student team and the supervisor team consistent messages, you have brought forward this topic for discussion at the team meeting for the Interprofessional Supervisors . Take up this discussion using the cards in front of you. Identify approaches and strategies you could take. </li></ul>
    17. 17. Recommendations <ul><li>Be familiar with your own role and others’ roles </li></ul><ul><li>Put yourself in the others’ shoes regarding previous training and background </li></ul><ul><li>Acknowledge power differences </li></ul><ul><li>Acknowledge and negotiate preferred ways of working </li></ul>
    18. 18. What might interprofessional supervision look like? (Gillig & Barr, 1999) <ul><li>Semi- annual chart review and face-to-face discussions held with clinicians by an interprofessional team (in addition to ‘regular’ supervision) </li></ul>
    19. 19. What might interprofessional supervision look like? (Thomasgard & Collins, 2003) <ul><li>A case-based peer supervision model </li></ul><ul><li>A continuing–education program, involving collaborative peer supervision </li></ul>
    20. 20. What might interprofessional supervision look like? (Ponzer et al., 2004) <ul><li>Interprofessional training in the context of clinical practice – clinical education wards </li></ul><ul><li>2 week interprofessional clinical course </li></ul>
    21. 21. What might interprofessional supervision look like? Emerson, 2004 <ul><li>How common or profession-specific are the competency requirements of the different professions for members who supervise students? </li></ul><ul><li>If commonality, how feasible is it to develop an integrated interprofessional development and support program for placement educators? </li></ul>
    22. 22. Common Competencies for Placement Educators (Emerson, 2004) <ul><li>Enabling learning </li></ul><ul><li>Knowledge of theories of learning </li></ul><ul><li>Ability to manage learning environment </li></ul><ul><li>Ability to impart and model a sense of professional responsibility </li></ul><ul><li>Current knowledge of professional practice </li></ul><ul><li>Current knowledge of relevant curricula </li></ul>
    23. 23. Summary of Literature <ul><li>Pilot projects and initiatives tend to be temporary so no long term data </li></ul><ul><li>Positive features shown initially tend to temper as demands of ‘real practice’ increase </li></ul><ul><li>Consistent problem seems to be working in parallel not collaboratively (at the level of individual projects as well as at the level of professional bodies) </li></ul><ul><li>Empirical reports of team supervision are extremely rare although often discussed theoretically </li></ul>
    24. 24. Summary of Literature <ul><li>Little empirical evidence about the EXTENT of interprofessional supervision </li></ul><ul><li>Little empirical evidence about advantages or disadvantages </li></ul><ul><li>No clearly articulated theory, models, or protocols </li></ul><ul><li>In short, people are engaging in interprofessional supervision without research, theory or knowledge base pertaining to interprofessional supervision competence. </li></ul>
