Education: Plan to utilize resources and knowledge of current Education Committee to meet Continuing Education requirements.
1. Actual supervision for licensing or credentialing- needs some more investigation regarding:
a) Whether we do the type of work that would qualify for Advanced Practice Social Work or Certified Independent Social Worker.
b) Is there any interest?
2. Clinical supervision more as a form or mentoring or on an as requested basis for the various problems we encounter
Mentoring: Some process for new hires beyond just visiting different units to help them learn the clinic, practical, hospital structure, team dynamics, computer aspects of their job. I envision this as a weekly or so meeting once the social worker is on their unit doing the job.
Case Conferences: Perhaps a monthly meeting to present 1 or 2 cases, maybe even get a CEH
Student Support Group: A weekly meeting for social work students. Also develop a survey of field supervisors to see how we can better support them in supervising field students.
Journal Review Lunches: Opportunity to discuss current issues, research in Social Work literature.
