Who is the module for? This module is a compulsory module for third year students on the BSc (Hons) Nursing

Module aims:  The aim of the module is to facilitate student groups to have reflective and reflexive conversations that enable them to link their practice experiences to theory and contemporary evidence-based practice and to promote and professional development of the students in preparation for becoming a registered nurse and gaining employment.

Brief module description/summary: Students will explore the philosophical perspectives of research approaches, consider a range of research methodologies, the important role of governance, ethical practises and the contribution of evidence to inform nursing practice. They will continue to develop the skills of critical reflection and writing and further advance their information retrieval skills evaluating sources of knowledge, contextualising the difference between information, opinion and research-based knowledge. They will recognise the contribution of evidence in identifying the need for changes in service delivery and its role in innovatory practice to the benefit of service users and their families whilst acknowledging and appreciating the impact that may result from a financial and physical resource perspective. An appreciation of budgetary management and business planning therefore will also be embraced within the module.

Module learning outcomes:

By the end of this module students should be able to:

1. Demonstrate a critical awareness of the professional and leadership relevance of group clinical supervision.

2. Identify and critically discuss the main themes that emerged from a case discussed in Adult Group Clinical Supervision and relate these to promoting and developing resilience in care provision.

3. Analyse aspects of their own learning and developing ability to reflect and be reflexive through the process of group clinical supervision.

4. Critically evaluate own personal and professional development, and articulate their suitability for employment as a Registered Adult Nurse

Overview of learning and teaching activities on the module:  

The module allows students the opportunity to reflect on practice experiences, both individually and within small groups, as a means of evaluating professional development and service delivery. The principles of prioritise people, practice effectively, preserve safety and promote professionalism and trust (NMC Code 2018), will be used to enable the student to contemplate practice experiences alongside these values and to prepare them for the standards expected of a registered professional.

Students will be required to discuss their placement experiences and reflect on their examples in an increasingly sophisticated and analytical way over the duration of the programme. Each student and each group will have opportunities to discuss practice relationships and interventions, in order to increase their knowledge, self-awareness, reflexivity, group skills, team working, and an appreciation of roles and responsibilities.  In addition to reflection and affording opportunities for reflexivity, students will be encouraged to explore contextual themes such as: group dynamics; professionalism and clinical decision making; developing emotional resilience and cultural competency.

Students will be allocated into programme clinical supervision groups, (approx. 8 -12 students from within their specific programme) and remain in the group for the duration of the module. The clinical supervision sessions will last between 90-120 minutes and will take place in the University. The facilitator (lecturer) will encourage all students to offer hypotheses on the practice experiences under discussion, creating multiple perspectives and a deeper understanding of practice and their performance.

Personal Academic Tutor (PAT) sessions will run in addition to, and complement the clinical supervision groups over the course of the academic year. At the start of the year there will be a period of academic development which will help prepare the students for studying at level 6 which will include critical thinking and analysis.

Personal Development Planning will be considered including enhanced skills, attainment of new skills, role advancement, and career progression linked to gaining future employment and establishing a framework for life-long learning as a registered nurse.

The PAT will continue to provide and afford opportunities for pastoral support

Equipment you need to bring to class: For the face to face sessions you will only need to bring the standard COVID

For the on-line sessions you will require access to a computer with internet, webcam and headphones to allow students to interact in with the lecturer and student colleagues within the virtual classroom.

PART TWO (GCS Element)

A written reflection of a practice experience or case that was discussed in one of the clinical supervision groups. (2000 words 50% of module mark)

The learning outcomes that should be addressed by this assignment are :

1. Demonstrate a critical awareness of the professional and leadership relevance of group clinical supervision.

2. Identify and critically discuss the main themes that emerged from a case discussed in Adult Group Clinical Supervision and relate these to promoting and developing resilience in care provision.

3. Analyse aspects of their own learning and developing ability to reflect and be reflexive through the process of group clinical supervision.

Reflection is an important and powerful strategy for you to use to develop your professional practice.  It enables the linking of practice experience with theoretical aspects of learning to help you to develop, moving from novice to skilled practitioner.  Reflection should enhance self-awareness, identifying personal strengths and the areas to focus on for development.  Theory helps to direct that new learning by providing relevant knowledge.  Critically viewing both ourselves and new knowledge is very important.

Consider the knowledge that you have acquired, the skills you have developed and feelings you have about different situations that you have encountered and about your own development.

To address learning outcomes 1 and 3 it is important that you clearly indicate whether group clinical supervision has assisted you to develop a deeper understanding of practice situations and how this may have improved your practice and help optimise patient outcomes.

The assignment should be written and formatted according to CCCU assignment writing guidelines.

Specific Guidance:

Write a reflection upon one experience of being in the group supervision (conversation had in the group). This may be a case that you brought to the group for discussion or an issue that another student brought to the group.  You may use a reflective framework to help structure your reflection or you may wish to refer to theories of reflection in your account of learning through group clinical experience.

You may use subheadings if you wish.

The reflection may be in both first and third person as appropriate.

For example, when introducing the assignment, you might choose either –

“For this assignment I will… “                             or

“This assignment will….”

When describing your practice experience or case, and your feelings, it is more appropriate to write in the first person. Here please use “I” rather than “the author” or “the student nurse”.

Introduction:

Produce an introduction which identifies the aims and objectives of the assignment (based upon the module learning outcomes) and signposts the topic for reflection and any reflective framework you intend to use.

Main Body:

If you have identified a reflective framework make sure that you actually use it to structure your assignment. If you are using a framework- please consider closely which framework to use. You may wish to discuss your choice with your module facilitator 

Regardless of framework, ensure you include sufficient description of the experience or case to properly contextualise your discussion. Be aware that much of the marks will be allocated to your analysis and your engagement with the literature. Make sure to consider how the group responded to the topic.

Ensure that you address the themes which are present in the module learning outcomes: -

-          Professionalism, leadership and clinical supervision

-          Resilience in care provision

-          Impact of group clinical supervision and any development of your own facilitation skills within the group context.

 

Conclusion: Include a summary of your key reflective learning and the impact of group discussion.
