Clinical supervision for nurses

Nursing can be both demanding and challenging. Improvements in the psychosocial and organizational work environment may help improve the health and wellbeing of healthcare professionals. Clinical supervision has been proposed to be a way to help nurses meet the psychosocial and organizational challenges they face. It is believed that clinical supervision will lead to a healthier work situation and thereby contribute to safer and more effective healthcare.

SBU Enquiry Service consists of systematic literature searches to highlight studies that can address questions received by the SBU Enquiry Service from Swedish healthcare or social service providers. Relevant references are compiled by an SBU staff member, in consultation with an external expert when needed. The quality of the studies identified is not systematically reviewed.
