Summary:

Supervisors wear several hats, sometimes more than one at a time. Clinical expertise, practical experience, and leadership training does not necessarily prepare healthcare professionals for an essential task: how to train people. Supervisors typically need to provide ongoing training to staff members, covering a variety of topics such as organizational procedures and profession-specific content in a way that motivates employees to learn. Adult training requires teaching methods different from those of childhood education. This education will prepare supervisors to create educational sessions that all adult audience members can understand, addressing all learning styles and skill levels.
