About remote supervision

Remote supervision aims to provide high-quality training options for registrars to work in locations where there is limited or no regular on-site supervision.  During remote supervision, registrars are primarily supervised by a supervisor who is offsite and phone and videoconferencing is used to teach, support, and ensure real-time assistance when needed. 

The RACGP remote supervision initiative could enable and influence improved access to care and address chronic workforce shortages that have affected remote and rural Australian towns for decades.

Remote supervision is not just traditional supervision provided remotely. There are additional challenges that need to be addressed, such as differing logistics, guidelines, and kinds of support required to ensure that the supervision can be delivered successfully.
