Supervision of trainees

  • Peter Herriot (a1), Kamaldeep Bhui (a2) and Paul Lelliott (a3)
Abstract

The Royal College of Psychiatrists specifies that supervision of trainees is the single most important ingredient of training. This paper reports the results of a pre-audit survey about trainee supervision. Eighty-three per cent of consultants (n=52) and 67% of trainees (n=51) responded to a 21-item Likert questionnaire. There was unanimous agreement for seven items. A significant number of consultants and trainees were dissatisfied with the existing arrangements despite the majority being involved in weekly supervision. The minimum standards proposed served as the basis for providing guidelines against which practice may be audited.
