Resilience-based Clinical Supervision (RBCS) Programme for Social Care Registered Nurses

The Foundation of Nursing Studies (FoNS) is an independent charity that focuses its energies, knowledge and expertise around compassionate, person-centred cultures of care. The vision of the charity is that all individuals should experience health and social care as person-centred, safe and effective. This includes those who are both giving and receiving care.

FoNS is delighted to be able to offer a programme of clinical supervision for all registered nurses and registered nursing associates working in social care.

The RBCS programme is a form of restorative supervision where nurses understand how to listen, support and challenge themselves and their colleagues to be able to improve their capacity to manage the difficult and stressful situations they experience.

RBCS is a participative programme which runs over five sessions. Each session builds upon the knowledge and confidence of the nurses, so they will, by the end, feel able to hold supervision sessions with colleagues.

It is an evidence-based model of clinical supervision which focuses on the ‘emotional systems motivating the response to a situation’.

It includes elements of mindfulness-based exercises with a view to ‘enhancing wellbeing, resilience and improving patient care’.

Registered nurses and registered nursing associates from any social care setting are welcome to attend the RBCS programme. All that is needed is agreement from their manager, time to attend, a quiet space and a laptop with a camera. It is a participative and interactive facilitated online programme.

The programme is currently fully funded for all social care nurses.

We look forward to welcoming you on to the RBCS programme.
