Helpful Aspects of Supervision and Consultation in Nursing

Supervision And Consultation

Priorities For The Content Of The Administrative Aspects Of Supervision 

In the Jefferson County Family Services Association (JCFSA), I am hired as a supervising a unit of MSW level social worker, the clinical case management is needed to be oversight and follow through in this way and there is the need to take care of the people or discharge patients. However, there is need of the additional plans and care planning, the individual counseling, medication compliance monitoring also needs to be implemented.

In the administration of JCFSA, I as a supervisor need to have the same qualities like good practitioners, as one need to be genuine, open, and flexible. One need to be clear about the goals so that there could be the better training of the people, however, the supervisor needs to train the workers, employees or the people, who are under. I should not focus on the individual differences there should not be the differences in the gender, race, ethnicity etc. I am, as a supervisor needs to be calm, comfortable and the need to have a strategic thinking. Moreover, I could evaluative and function that how the performance is done, I need to enjoy supervision and should show the commitments (Marzano, Frontier, & Livingston, 2011).

Helpful Aspects of Supervision and Consultation in Nursing

A supervisor should be prepared for the supervision session, as I am in the JCFSA, as supervisor needs to tell the workers that how they could give support to the patients, how they could bring them to the normal life, there is the need to think from different point of view, in order to focus on the mission and vision. The personal traits and interpersonal style need the sense of humor, as the relationships and environments in this way can focus, in order to respond to change, the supervisor needs to do efforts for the common goals, and there is the need to share knowledge and experiences in the respectful manner. I need to focus on the super roles and skill. There is the need of the self-evaluation, and feedback, as I will ask my employees or the members that how I am performing and they satisfied from my supervisor, however, there will be the objectively in assessing problem situation, I will focus on providing the alternative interventions. The facilitating supervisee can bring the effective changes example, brainstorming of alternatives, good quality of practice etc (SEVERINSSON & SAND, 2010).

Priorities For The Content Of The Educational Aspects Of Supervision 

I am as a supervisor, will focus on the educational aspects of supervision, for this purpose, there is the need to do communication with clarity, in order to seek confirmation of understanding. In the JCFSA, there is need of the effective outcomes so that the patients could be treated in the effective ways. To reduce the frequency of errors the supervisor need to focus on the expected outcomes, as the employees need to train and need to provide the learning based on trust and mutual respect. I can focus on the establishing a relationship by providing the constructive feedback that how they are treating the patient and what is required to be doing. I encourage a culture, in which there are the explicit feedback and self-reflection (Borders, Lewis, Mobley, Murray, Villalba, & Wester, 2011).

For the effective patient care through training, the supervisor can focus on maintaining an environment, which is effective for everyone as the thinking or the plans could be successful if the assessment is done. The employees need to be trained so that there could be the continuous learning and they become able to perform in the better way, to develop the key ideas, the worker, need to be given guidance on the personal and professional aspects. However, as clinical supervisors, I will focus on the high-quality learning in the workplace and there will be the additional training so that performance could be carried out in the effective ways, the supporting and monitoring is the best way. In order to provide the effective vision for the achievement of the tasks, example, the learning or training for the patient care, there can be the focus on valuable training and then there could be the evaluation steps.

Priorities For The Content Of The Supportive Aspects Of Supervision 

I am as the supervisor in JCFSA can provide the support to my people or the people, as there is the need to focus on the supportive aspects of supervision, the process of helping staff can prove to be effective in this way. As the employees can be given the training and allocate the resources so that there could be the improvement of their performance. However, to improve their work performance there is the need to focus continuously on the respectful and non-authoritarian way or the supervision. To provide the benefits, to the people, there could be effective session is that there could the opportunities to improve knowledge of the people and there is the need to improve the skills of health staff (Bor & Watts, 2016).

The supportive supervision encourages can encourage the staff, as the effectively can be there in the two-way communication because the team can give the benefits. Moreover, there can be the building team approaches. I will focus on the two-way approach of communication so that the employees could discuss the resources they wanted from me and the employees could be facilitated if they are facing the issues, regarding the patients or the resources. To value them, to be supportive is an important aspect, as for facilitate problem-solving techniques could be useful in this way, and there is the need to monitoring performance towards goals (Hawkins, Shohet, Ryde, & Wilmot, 2012).

From the supportive aspect, the decision-making can be useful, as there is the need to do that the regular follow-up with staff so that there could be the discussion about the new tasks, which can be implemented in the organization. For me, if staff is given the support the different needs then the performance can be improved towards the patients, thus, there is the need of effective inspection or control. The supportive approach can be proved to be effective if the health workers work together for the control approach and there is involvement in the different aspects. The employees need to train for the performance and solve problems. If the employees facing the issues regarding performance and there are the problem in building relationships with the patients or the other people then they could discuss with the supervisor (Runcan, 2013).

I am as a supportive supervisor tries to help the employees or the worker and there will be the discussion on the difficulties if they are facing, moreover, I will focus on the follow-up sessions regularly so that the helping and the training materials could be provided for the effectiveness. There will be the recording recommendations and helpful ways for the workers.

As an effective supervisor if I encounter in supervision, then in order to communicate to the Executive Director I will focus on the building the effective management so that my people or the worker could be treated effectively in the organization. As the supervisory skills need to focus on the advanced management skills so there can be learning provided, however, I can communicate with the executive director, in order to provide me and another supervisor with the advance training. To manage the people more effectively in the JCSFA, there is the need to give them training at the advanced level, I will ask for the support so that there could be more effectiveness in my operations and people tasks (Kadushin & Harkness, 2014).

The executive manager can ask to manage people more effectively as there is the need to develop and refine the skills in order gives the support to the patients, as the communication skills are impotent and it brings the team development, interpersonal skills so would like to promote the internal communication, within an organization. Internal communication, need to supportive in an organization so that people could ask for the issues, in order to do the jobs effectively, There are the needs to focus on the clear standards and expectations so the steps of effective feedback need to give emotional supports. The executive director will be asked to maintain a shared vision so that there could be the sense of ownership and discussion of the potential problems, there will be the decision to promote fairness and equity for the effectiveness in the tasks (Bond & Holland, 2011).

Review Of Preliminary Discharge Plans

In the preliminary discharge, plans there could be the ethical issues that can face by staff and the patients, as there could be negative health outcomes in the patients. In this way, the staff or worker of the JCSFA need to be trained, the social workers need to discharge the patients at the right time so that there could not be ethical dilemmas and the complex or the complicated situations. The dilemmas evolves, the illness progresses in the patients, thus, for the safety plans, I can focus on the identification of the coordination, evaluation, video conferencing, goal setting, planning, and assessment, so that it could be assured that the patient should be given the discharge or not, mental illness can create different problems in society. In the way the discharge planning needs to be encouraged, in order to increase patient satisfaction, moreover, the planning could reduce readmission to the hospital, there can be the benefit on many aspects, the health-care costs could also reduce (Hofflander, Nilsson, Eriksén, & Borg, 2013).
