Training and Supervision - Description

You are here

Do you have a training and supervision plan?

The content of training will vary depending on the Evidence-based practice being implemented, but it's important to remember that staff members at all levels require training when a new practice is being implemented.

Effective training involves:

  • Providing practitioners with the background information, theory, philosophy and values of the new program or practice
  • Introducing and demonstrating the components and rationals of key practices
  • Providing opportunities to practice specific skills related to the new way of work and receive feedback in a safe training environment
  • Providing staff with opportunities for quality interaction[1]
