2017 was a great year for our WHO-CC and we are so grateful for the strong support and collaboration we have received, to our work towards more effective treatments and better health gain for patients.

Worldwide, implementation is a major challenge in the clinical health care, therefore the focus in our WHO-CC is on the very new model for Fast Track Implementation including development of useful definitions and description of business cases. This focus will continue for the coming years.

A few highlights from 2017: Presentation of new evidence, Publication of 15 scientific articles + 1 book chapter, Implementation seminar on evidence-based teaching, New business case, among many other activities.

We are looking forward to next year and want to wish you all a Merry Christmas and a Happy New Year!

Self-reported needs for improving the supervision competence of PhD supervisors from the medical sciences in Denmark

Quality of supervision is a major predictor for successful PhD projects. The aim of this study was to explore PhD supervisors' self-reported needs and wishes regarding the content of a new program in supervision, with a special focus on the supervision of PhD students in medical fields.

Overall, the results indicated a general interest in improved competence and development of a new supervision programme. Those who were not interested argued that, due to their extensive experience with supervision, they had no need to participate in such a programme. The analysis revealed seven overall themes to be included in the course. The clinical context offers PhD supervisors additional challenges that include the following sub-themes: patient recruitment, writing the first article, agreements and scheduled appointments and two main groups of students, in addition to the main themes. In conclusion, the PhD supervisors reported the clear need and desire for a competence enhancement programme targeting the supervision of PhD students at the Faculty of Health and Medical Sciences. Supervision in the clinical context appeared to require additional competence.
