Abstract

Nurses work in a constantly challenging and changing environment. Within this context, there is a continuing need for support. Such support will help increase morale, decrease strain and burnout, and encourage self-awareness and self-expression. Clinical supervision address all these issues and enhances the quality of care for patients. While clinical supervision is a policy imperative in Northern Ireland, it was clear that there were problems in its implementation in mental health nursing. The aim of this project was to explore ways to make clinical supervision available to all mental health nurses and to improve and evaluate their contribution to patient care. The research team undertook a comprehensive literature review and a baseline survey of relevant stakeholders. Results represent the outcome of the group work. They will assist healthcare providers to develop local policies and procedures on clinical supervision for practising mental health nurses.
