What is the Focus of Professional Supervision for Aged Care?
The focus of learning in supervision is the work- the practice of the supervisee. The supervisor is or becomes a facilitator of supervisee-learning-from-practice (reflective practice). The what-is-being-learned of supervision is anything to do with the work: theory, skills, induction into a profession, professional savvy and wisdom, skills and competencies, self-awareness, ethical awareness and sensitivity, ability to use intuition and that array of knowledge, skills, attitudes, values, and mind-sets that go to make up the professional in whatever profession.
