This chapter examines the relationship between clinical supervision and clinical governance. Both terms are somewhat imprecise and the variety of definitions that surround both terms only adds to the confusion that is experienced by clinicians and managers alike. The author carefully examines both concepts and draws them together with a convergence model. Veronica is unique among the authorities on clinical supervision. She held one of the highest strategic positions in nursing and was a key figure in the implementation of clinical supervision within the UK. Since then she has continued to research, write and be actively involved in clinical supervision at all levels of the nursing profession. Within this chapter she manages to draw together the clinical supervision practice of the individual nurse and the implications of developing clinical supervision at strategic level.
