Due to the complexity and diversity of contexts in which Reflective Supervision is implemented there are limitations in the literature related to attributable outcomes.
Despite this there is evidence to suggest that Supervision is a professionally enriching activity providing peer support, greater job satisfaction and promoting professional accountability.
As part of implementation, the following outcomes have been selected to study a link between the process and impact on practice . There has been agreement regionally that this provides an opportunity to use an Outcomes Based Approach (OBA) which asks three questions to identify the most important performance measures:
- How much did we do? (number of people are availing of Reflective Supervision)
- How well did we do it?
- Is anyone better off? (for example heightened peer support, increased job satisfaction and wellbeing, feeling more valued)
