The responsibility to ensure that supervision does not compromise patient care and safety is shared between the supervisor and the trainee. When being supervised:
- You must only be supervised by someone who is approved by your employer or training provider.
- Ensure that your supervisor is on the premises, in a position to oversee the work you undertake and is ready to intervene if necessary in order to protect patients.
- Your supervisor retains clinical responsibility for the patient.
- Comply with all legal requirements governing the activity.
