What is Supervision?

Many HPs have not received applied practice supervision post-qualification and often work in isolation from other HPs, so they may wonder what they will experience in HP supervision. It is a process of professional support and self-development which enables individual practitioners to formalise the integration of professional knowledge and competence into their practice under the oversight of an experienced HP, helping them to assume responsibility for their own practice and enhance the public protection and safety of care.
