Clinical supervision

Welcome to the Clinical Supervision for Midwives learning resource. This resource is created to support midwives develop relevant knowledge and skills for participating in clinical supervision. The purpose of clinical supervision for midwives is to contribute to improved services, safe care and better outcomes for women and families, by supporting midwives to reflect on and develop their clinical midwifery practice in line with professional accountability and regulation (Scottish Government, 2017).
Changes to the regulation of supervision in midwifery (NMC, 2017a) has provided the opportunity to adopt a refreshed approach in practice. This refreshed approach focuses on supporting midwives to reflect on their clinical practice to help develop resilience and good practice.
