This course addresses the important and multifaceted roles that comprise the clinical manager or supervisor. Though the terms, titles, and purview may vary from organization to organization, there is a discrete set of skills that can help the clinical supervisor (CS) be successful in this role. Whether supervising aides, a group of patients and their care plans, or other care models, the CS plays a pivotal role that helps achieve the organization's mission, as well as quality, safety, and any number of metrics. The skills needed--effective communication, role-play, and coaching and counseling for success--will be addressed. These skills will help you become proficient in your role--that of the clinician supervisor. This is the third course in a four-part series on clinical management and supervision. Please continue to the fourth course Essential Elements of Clinical Supervision upon completion.

1. Being/Becoming a Manager: Welcome and Foundational Concepts for Success

This foundational chapter sets the stage for why the clinical supervisor role is so important. Clinical supervisors need to be competent clinicians, in addition to performing a number of administrative and other activities that comprise the role. As home care and hospice models of care flex to meet the increasing needs of the aging and other patient populations, this role remains the anchor for a number of organizational metrics. Though there may be different words for this role, many of the activities remain the same. Some of the roles for success will be addressed, as well as the skill set needed for orientation, success, and retention.

2. Education and Competencies Needed for Success: Core Concepts

In this chapter, a practical, holistic definition of home care is presented for clarity and application. Because of the complexity of home care, a listing of trusted sources is provided for course participants. Other education and competencies addressed in this chapter include orientation components, care planning, critical thinking, physician considerations, and case management models for organization and workload. In addition, information about making effective home visits with team members, the clinical supervisor’s role in the documentation, understanding of Medicare complexities, and an overview of health care in flux are all presented for practical application. The more focused and holistic the visit, the more quality and safety are brought to the home visit. This chapter helps new and experienced supervisors see these visits with new eyes and value.
