Put the supervision into practice

first_imgRelated posts:No related photos. Most OH practitioners agree that “clinical” or”professional” supervision is a good idea. Having regular, protectedtime with a supervisor for in-depth reflection, enabling the practitioner todevelop their practice and be supported, is important whether in clinicalpractice, management or education. So why are OH nurses finding it hard to establish supervision in theirworkplaces? OH is not unique in finding problems in implementation, one cause beingresource constraints, mainly time and money to replace nurses while supervisiontakes place. The benefits have also been hard to evaluate, making it difficult to”sell” to management. The UKCC has recommended supervision but hasgiven little direction on what models to use, particularly in such a diversespeciality as OH. Perhaps part of the problem lies in OHNs seeing supervision as another taskinstead of an integral part of practice, as intended. Students completing theirOH education are expected to reflect on their development with tutors andplacement supervisors. This should continue throughout lifelong practice and beused to help demonstrate quality OH services. Through networking with OH colleagues, there appears to be some goodexamples of models of supervision in use. These practitioners have workedthrough the peripheral issues in introducing supervision and have establishedsystems either through one-to-one, group or peer supervision. These examplesshould be shared, including the problems, to guide others in implementing theprocess. One major issue is ensuring that any model provides “quality”supervision. How can this be achieved? It is important that a supervisor mustunderstand the principles and skills of supervision and can work in areflective way with the supervisee. A supervisor should be working from an experienced professional practiceviewpoint and have an educated understanding of the surrounding issues, such asthe ethical and theoretical perspectives, to help develop professionaljudgement. The difficulties in accessing supervisors and developing standards are beingdiscussed at a national level and solutions will follow in time. Before thenlet us share our experiences and move forward in integrating supervision intopractice.

Missouri’s first Black congresswoman gives a speech for the ages

first_imgBush went on to talk about representing the people in the America we all share, “not Trump’s America” or the America led by “the small-mindedness of a powerful few, but the imagination of a mass movement that includes all of us.” She talked about how she will be carrying her constituents with her everywhere she goes and to every room she works in. She gave this very moving reminder of what leadership and representative democracy can promise to be.BUSH: St. Louis, if you know nothing else, you remember this: Your congresswoman-elect, soon-to-be congresswoman loves you. Your congresswoman-elect, soon-to-be congresswoman loves you; and I need you to get that. Because if I love you, I care that you eat. If I love you, I care that you have shelter and adequate safe housing. If I love you, I care that you have clean water and clean air, and you have a livable wage. If I love you, I care that the police don’t murder you. If I love you, I care that you make it home safely. If I love you, I care that you are able to have a dignity, and have a quality of life the same as the next person, the same as those that don’t look like you. That didn’t grow up the same way you did. Those that don’t have the same socioeconomic status as you. I care.Bush finished by raising her fist in the sky, along with the family and friends that stood on stage with her, and made the pledge to walk “arm in arm, with our fists in the air, ready to serve each other until every single one of us is free.” – Advertisement – CONGRESSWOMAN-ELECT CORI BUSH: So, I was running. I was that person running for my life, across a parking lot. Running from an abuser. I remember one day hearing bullets whiz past my head, and at that moment I wondered, How do I make it out of this life?  I was uninsured. I’ve been that uninsured person, hoping my healthcare provider wouldn’t embarrass me by asking if I had insurance. I wondered, how will I bear this?I was a single parent. I’ve been that single parent, struggling paycheck to paycheck. Sitting outside the payday loan office wondering, how much more will I have to sacrifice?I was that COVID-19 patient. I’ve been that COVID-19 patient, gasping for breath, wondering how long will it be before I can breathe again? I’m still that person. I’m proud to stand before you today knowing it was this person, with these experiences, that moved the voters of St. Louis to do something historic. St. Louis, my city. My home, my community. We have been surviving and grinding, and just scraping by for so long and now this is our moment to finally start living. Let’s finally start living. Let’s finally start growing. Let’s finally start thriving.So, as the first Black woman, and also the first nurse, and single mother to have the honor to represent Missouri in the United States Congress let me say this: To the Black women, the Black girls, the nurses, the essential workers, the single mothers—this is our moment.  center_img – Advertisement –last_img read more

Danica adds to Danish backing of net-zero asset owner group

first_imgDanica Pension has joined a now 26-strong group of asset owners committing to a carbon-neutral investment portfolio by 2050, with the DKK450bn (€60bn) provider stating it viewed active ownership as an important tool for doing so.It is now the fourth Danish member of the UN-convened Net-Zero Asset Owner Alliance, after MP Pension and PFA joined in the past two months;  PensionDanmark was a member at launch.Danich Pension CEO Ole Krogh Petersen said the provider’s €60bn in assets under management “can make a huge difference for the green transformation”.“That is our focus already now and will be for many years to come,” he said, adding that long-term ambitions were “a good thing but acting in a timely manner is even more important”. Danica is aiming to have DKK30bn invested in the “green transformation” by 2023, DKK50bn by 2025, and DKK100bn by 2030; the latter represents around one-fifth of the provider’s current assets under management.In the first quarter, Danica increased its green transformation investments by 38%, from around DKK10bn to DKK14bn.Announcing its net-zero commitment, Danica said it saw active ownership as an important tool in the work to achieve a carbon-neutral portfolio.“By addressing climate issues through climate dialogue and voting at general meetings, Danica Pension as an investor can help, encourage or require the companies to transform their business on a scale and at a pace that is consistent with the Paris Agreement’s 1.5° target,” it said.Earlier this month Danica released its first climate report, according to which the CO2 emissions related to its equity and corporate bond investments were 33 tons per DKK1m invested at the end of 2019, 21% less CO2 than the global benchmark for these asset classes.The Net-Zero Asset Owner Alliance was launched in September. Its action “focuses on implementing the Paris Agreement, the main goal of which is to limit the rise in global average temperature to 1.5°C”.Participating investors’ must emphasise emission reduction outcomes in the real economy. According to the alliance, those joining make their commitment to net-zero “in the expectation that governments will follow through on their own commitments to ensure the objectives of the Paris Agreement are met”.The Net-Zero Asset Owner Alliance is part of a new campaign called Race to Zero that is seeking to build momentum ahead of COP26, rescheduled for November 2021, by rallying the private sector, including finance, to achieve net zero emissions by 2050.It is under the stewardship of Nigel Topping and Gonzalo Munoz, UN high-level climate champions for the UK and Chile, and supported by Mark Carney, UN special envoy for climate and finance and advisor to the UK government on COP26.Looking for IPE’s latest magazine?

LA Lakers fall at Phoenix as Kobe Bryant sits out game

first_img“(D’Angelo) didn’t come out with the type of energy you need,” Scott said. “(Randle) got in early foul trouble and that messed him up.”Lakers second-year point guard Jordan Clarkson may have offered a team-leading 20 points on 6-of-12 shooting in 33 minutes. but that did little to offset Phoenix guard Brandon Knight, who recorded his first career triple-double with 30 points on 11-of-23 shooting, 15 assists and 10 rebounds. Suns guard Eric Bledsoe also added 21 points on 8-of-16 shooting. So much for Scott saying beforehand he expected Clarkson and Russell “to accept the challenge” in defending the Suns’ backcourt. How does the Russell-Clarkson tandem mirror the Suns?“Trusting each other and being able to play off of each other,” Russell said. “It’s something we’re trying to figure out.”The Lakers (2-9) did not face a double-digit deficit until the Suns (5-4) scored seven unanswered points in one minute to open the fourth quarter. They took advantage of an unproven L.A. lineup featuring European import Marcelo Huertas, Lou Williams, Nick Young, rookie forward Larry Nance Jr and undersized center Brandon Bass. PHOENIX >> This could have marked another farewell road reception for Kobe Bryant, the Lakers star receiving applause from an opposing crowd that mostly spent his 20-year NBA career booing him. But with Bryant resting in Los Angeles after carrying a heavy workload the night before in a rare win, the Lakers hoped they could absorb his absence by expediting the young players’ development.Instead, the Lakers experienced every worst-case scenario in their 120-101 loss to the Suns on Tuesday at Talking Stick Resort Arena in what marked L.A.’s ninth consecutive loss here. “The whole game they played harder than we did,” Lakers coach Byron Scott said. “They were much more aggressive.” Lakers rookie guard D’Angelo Russell and second-year forward Julius Randle remained mostly quiet. Russell posted only 13 points on 5-of-12 shooting, (eight of which came in garbage time), two rebounds and two assists. Randle had six points on 2-of-6 shooting, five rebounds and four fouls. Neither player made a field goal until midway through the third quarter. Newsroom GuidelinesNews TipsContact UsReport an Errorcenter_img Still, Scott zeroed in on the Lakers’ 17 turnovers and the Suns’ 18 offensive rebounds. He called it a “bunch of crap” that those miscues stemmed from fatigue in playing on the second night of a back-to-back. Instead, Scott said he will institute high school-style box-out drills.“We’re definitely having them this week,” Scott said. “I guarantee you.”Lakers center Roy Hibbert argued he “has to do a better job of boxing out,” after grabbing seven rebounds while wearing a mask to protect his injured nose. Both Hibbert and Randle supported Scott’s strategy.“It puts it into our conscience,” Randle said. “We can’t physically be getting beat on the offensive boards.”last_img read more
