Minimum inclusion criteria
Thank you for your interest in offering clinical supervision. This database is designed to assist mental health nurses to find a suitable clinical supervisor. Through wide consultation the following criteria for eligibility to be on this database were developed:
- You have at least 3 years' experience in a mental health designated role
- You accept the underlying principles of Victoria's clinical supervision framework for mental health nurses
- You have attended clinical supervision training or can demonstrate equivalent clinical supervision experience and expertise
- You have received continuous clinical supervision for a minimum of 1 year
Supervisors applying to be listed on the CMHL public database attest that you agree to abide by your own service's policies and procedures in your supervision, including when providing supervision under reciprocal arrangements.
The Chief Mental Health Nurse, with significant contributions from Victoria’s Senior Mental Health Nurses, has prepared a document to guide further implementation of consistent approaches for reciprocal arrangements between Health Services, enabling more mental health nurses to access a clinical supervisor. If you are an AMHS employed nurse please ensure you read and abide by this document before applying to be listed on the database. For an accessible word version, click here.
