Supervisors' values charter
Reflecting the value with which I hold JMOs I supervise and or teach, I strive to….

2. Promote diversity and wellbeing
#5 enquire about and show concern for JMOs’ wellbeing.
#6 demonstrate respect for JMOs’ age, gender, cultural values and beliefs.

#8 intervene if I witness others behaving disrespectfully toward JMOs.
3. Ensure patients and staff are safe
