Support and clinical supervision can benefit staff and service users. Inquiries have highlighted lack of support and clinical supervision as potential contributory factors for adverse care events. For support and clinical supervision to be embedded effectively, leaders and managers must value and promote them in their organisations. This article describes practical steps to support implementation of clinical supervision. By examining the main stages of supervision and preparation, evaluation of process and outcomes, and practical considerations, the article supports healthcare managers to encourage staff engagement and to implement a clinical supervision process.
