From June to November 2006 NIPEC led a six month DHSSPS commissioned project with the assistance of a partnership Regional Review Group chaired by Mrs Hazel Baird (Director of Nursing, Homefirst Community Trust and NIPEC Council Member).


Membership of the Review Group was composed of colleagues across the HPSS and branches of nursing with related expertise. The review looked at the practice of clinical supervision across post-registration nursing in the acute and community settings of Northern Ireland. 

For the purpose of this review, the term "clinical supervision" included a wide range of activities that has a "supervision" impact such as action learning, reflective learning groups, critical companionship, professional and peer supervision, particularly where such activities are formally identified as having similar principles to clinical supervision.
