abstract

  • This paper describes how McMaster University, Department of Occupational Therapy implemented a shared supervision model during an adult physical health block clinical placement, in two fieldwork settings in Hamilton. Five students were assigned to each of the clinical facilities and spent time with the group supervisors and clinical preceptors to meet their learning needs. The objectives, implementation process, training and orientation process, learning and evaluation process, and outcome of this project are discussed. The shared supervision model appears to be a viable alternative supervision model in fieldwork education.
