The Nursing Team - Clinical Supervision
Health Education England - "Learners receive educational and pastoral support to be able to demonstrate what is expected in their curriculum or professional standards to achieve the learning outcomes required."
Clinical Supervision is essential to demonstrate the commitment of the organisation and its clinical staff. It encourages reflection on clinical practice using a constructive approach to support and increase the confidence and capability of staff, with the primary aim of improving the quality of care provided to the patient population. Clinical supervision can both enable and support those in clinical practice.
Clinical supervision can take place between a group of professionals and on a one-to-one basis. Some take the form of discussion around real case studies and reflect on the scenario and outcome with the emphasis on facilitated learning. One to one supervision may also be referred to as mentoring usually provide by a more experienced colleague, this can also take place as ‘action learning'.
