Rural Allied Health Supervision and Support Project (RAHSSP)

Connecting Practice redefines supervision as a fluid concept which is part of a broader context of change management. It recognises that there are multiple different supervision and support relationships, and these are contextually dependent. In other words, individuals are likely to require multiple different supervision and support relationships according to different needs, and these needs will change over time. Unlike the organisational focus of existing tools, Connecting Practice focuses on linking the needs and goals of the individual with those of the organisation and creating support structures that can address these goals.
