Getting going with clinical supervision: an introductory seminar



Clinical supervision is an emerging force in nursing practice in the United Kingdom. However, much of the nursing literature suggests uncertainty with regards to what clinical supervision is and the resources needed for safe professional practice. This paper explores a method of introducing clinical supervision to nurses in such a way as to model the skills and competencies required for developing productive working relationships. The main recommendation of this paper is that procedures for introducing clinical supervision mirror qualities required for developing effective nursing relationships.
