Abstract

Objectives: To establish what supervisory methods are used in postgraduate medical education and to determine how effective, particularly in relation to patient care, these methods are perceived to be.

Method: National validated questionnaire survey of medical directors, trusts and trainees in 7 specialties. Total N: 310

Conclusions: Supervision is considered to be both important and effective but there is inadequate coverage and frequency of supervisory activity, including in areas which ensure patient safety.
