In this chapter, the authors focus on the introduction of interprofessional (IP) supervision as a key direction for advancing clinical supervision within the Canadian context. The authors discuss the advantages and challenges of IP supervision and they offer suggestions for enhancing clinical placements. A new perspective, lateral mentoring, is introduced as a supervision practice, through which trainees benefit from exposure to the perspectives of professionals from multiple disciplines. The authors propose that traditional approaches to clinical supervision may be enhanced by a shift in philosophy and practice towards lateral mentoring.
