VdTMoCA supervision and individual CPD opportunities

In 2021, I ran a series of Zoom-based supervision sessions, facilitated by expert practitioners based in South Africa. These were truly superb.

Recordings of the sessions have been edited into a series of videos accompanied by questions posed to prompt your own active learning, and suggestions for reading.  

These, plus other videos of teaching sessions and other resources are excellent CPD opportunities for any individual who has been trained or gained the foundation VdTMoCA knowledge through experiential learning.

Supportive clinical visit
This is by far the most effective method of increasing practitioners' confidence in how they are using the VdTMoCA in their daily practice.

This opportunity has not been made available for a few years, but due to the increasing number of Trusts that are adopting the VdTMoCA across its services, and therefore the number of teams now learning the Model, supportive visits are being requested.

In relation to applying the VdTMoCA to practice, practitioners frequently express uncertainty about whether they are ‘doing it right’ or ‘getting it right’. The supportive clinical visit aims to help you answer this question and to increase your knowledge and skills for practice. Whether you’re unsure about whether you are leveling correctly from assessments, or understanding the components of creative ability on the assessment form, or grading your sessions or doing OT well or ‘right’ with clients, or any other query – this supportive clinical visit aims to address your queries and enable you to grow in knowledge and skills.

A one-day supportive clinical visit aims to meet the continuing professional development needs of OTs and support workers in context. This supportive initiative focuses on the needs of practitioners and/or managers in terms of addressing questions regarding the use of the model in practice. This is most effectively achieved through allowing Dr Wendy Sherwood to observe practice followed by discussion of sessions observed, and the provision of feedback aimed to increase practitioners’ knowledge and confidence in practice. If a series of visits is planned, bespoke training can also be provided in response to clinicians' needs. A written report on visits is provided, identifying strengths, areas for development and recommendations for moving forward.
