Abstract

Literature on clinical supervision includes few references to the experiences of those being supervised. In this qualitative study two groups of intensive care nurses were surveyed for their views on clinical supervision: 10 NICU staff who had experience of one-to-one supervision and 15 PICU staff without that experience. In addition, six NICU nurses were interviewed to elicit their understanding and perceptions of aspects of the process. A range of themes and categories emerged which identified issues for practice and management, including the value of supervision, its effect on care and requirements for its successful implementation.
