As its title indicates, this chapter offers an overview of clinical supervision and ideas regarding requirements for professional practice. The author discusses the topic by revisiting different formats for supervision and outlining the most common methods and modes. The author draws on varied literature and his own experiences to illustrate the potential benefits and possible pitfalls. The chapter concludes with the suggestion that clinical supervision forms an important part of the framework for clinical governance and, while supervision itself will challenge nurses, there is a need to identify critical elements that help professional practice.
