Types of Supervision
Supervision is a supported relationship in which personal and professional learning is central.
Supervision aims to safeguard standards, develop professional expertise, and deliver quality care. It is a formal process of professional support and learning and a means of identifying solutions to problems and encouraging self-assessment and analytical and reflective skills. It encourages the supervisee to view patients/ clients as individuals and supports clinicians to explore their feelings and provides a link between research and practice.
Supervision is also a space where the supervisee can consolidate learning, explore the effects of our work, and make sense of the feelings our work evokes.
