Last week, the CSDS team set up a booth at the Royal Brisbane and Women’s Hospital (RBWH) to promote the importance of Clinical Supervision for nurses and midwives.

The event proved to be a resounding success, with a fantastic turnout and some very encouraging conversations. Nurses and midwives from various departments stopped by to learn more about the benefits of Clinical Supervision.

The visit of Alanna Geary, Chief Nursing and Midwifery Officer at Metro North, demonstrated the Health Service’s strong commitment to supporting its nurses and midwives through the early stages of implementing the Clinical Supervision program.

Feedback from nurses and midwives was overwhelmingly positive, with many expressing a strong interest in participating in the Clinical Supervision program.

Others shared their own experiences with Clinical Supervision, highlighting the positive impact it had on them. Among them was Taran Johson, a graduate nurse engaged in Clinical Supervision.
