In Fundamental Themes in Clinical Supervision, Gilmore (2001) presented a summary of her comprehensive United Kingdom Central Council (UKCC)-commissioned literature review of clinical supervision for nurses and health visitors in the UK. As a logical follow up, this chapter presents a review of the nursing literature relating to clinical supervision which has been published between 1999 and 2009. After reminding readers of the UKCC’s (now the Nursing Midwifery Council’s) endorsement of clinical supervision, the chapter includes a critical appraisal of both the empirical and conceptual literature, including anecdotal accounts, expert opinion and position papers which have pervaded the nursing literature during the past decade. The chapter concludes with some recommendations on how clinical supervision can be further embedded into nursing practice.
