This session will introduce the role of the PNA (Professional Nurse Advocate) and the models used to support staff with Restorative Clinical Supervision. The PNA uses A-EQUIP (Advocacy and Education for Quality Improvement Personal plans) to guide and coach staff through a process of reflection and learning to look forward to their personal development. This supports a continuous improvement process building personal, professional and clinical leadership, enhances care for patients and supports revalidation. It has been shown to improve staff retention and well-being, enabling safe and effective patient care.
