Clinical supervision

Clinical Supervision is a practice focused professional relationship, involving a practitioner reflecting on practice guided by a skilled supervisor.

Enabling practitioners to access preceptorship and clinical supervision recognises that support and learning does not end with registration but continues throughout their career.

Through maintaining and improving their knowledge and competence nurses and midwives will be ensuring that they are providing a safe standard of practice to the patients in their care.

Clinical Supervision can:

  • Provide evidence of continuous professional development – both as a supervisee and a supervisor
  • Facilitate the development of professional self-awareness
  • Include mentoring and coaching to facilitate career development
