In a nutshell: The authors of this review say that developing patient safety skills and knowledge among advanced trainee doctors is essential. They aimed to establish the use of clinical supervision and other workplace training to develop non-technical patient safety competency in advanced trainee doctors. The findings showed that clinical supervision is not identified as an avenue for embedding patient safety skills in the workplace and is therefore not evaluated as a method to teach trainees these skills. Workplace training in non-technical patient safety skills is limited, but one-off training courses are sometimes used. It is of utmost importance to support supervisors to identify teaching moments during supervision and to give weight to non-technical skills and technical skills equally.
