ABSTRACT
The Health Practitioners Competence Assurance Act 2003 defines Supervision as the 'means of monitoring of, and reporting on, the performance of a health practitioner by a professional peer'. This changing climate within which health practitioners now work has brought about a renewed interest in the role that clinical supervision plays in developing practitioners who are competent and fit to practice in their chosen profession. This article presents an account of the ongoing learning and development of the skills of supervision by way of combined nursing and allied health supervisor groups in a community health service. The background to the creation of these groups will be described along with their development over a two year period. Some of the difficulties encountered in implementing this initiative will also be discussed. Results of an evaluation of their effectiveness will be presented, and suggestions for future initiatives will be provided.
