Health Education England use CQC’s (2013) practice focused definition of clinical supervision:
"An opportunity for healthcare practitioners to reflect on and review their clinical practice, discuss individual cases in depth and identify changes or modifications to practice which are required to maintain professional and public safety. It provides an opportunity to identify training and continuing development needs."
It is important to recognise that clinical supervision is different to educational, managerial and administrative supervision - this table attempts to demonstrate the differences at a practice level.
Below you may will find links to resources and training, both for those already involved in clinical supervision and those developing an interest.
