Clinical supervision: a concept analysis.

Author information

Bro Morgannwg NHS Trust, Wales.


Clinical supervision: a concept analysis Clinical supervision is a commonly discussed concept within nursing. There appears to be a common belief that it is a good thing for nursing. Many practitioners, however, are still unsure what clinical supervision is and what is expected of them. A number of definitions and models of supervision have been developed but it remains ill defined. This paper develops a conceptual analysis of clinical supervision using the method developed by Rodgers (1989). A review of the literature precedes description of the attributes, antecedents, consequences and references. A model case is outlined prior to a proposed definition of supervision being given. It is hoped that this paper will stimulate further exploration and study of this concept.
