Kleiser, Helen and Cox, Diane (2008) The integration of clinical and managerial supervision: a critical literature review. British Journal of Occupational Therapy, 71 (1). pp. 2-12. Full text not available from this repository.
The introduction of a new development review process, the Knowledge and Skills Framework (KSF), has placed a greater demand on occupational therapists within the health service to be more accountable for practice. It has been proposed that the KSF may provide a useful structure for supervision in order to ensure continual development. Therefore, this literature review looked at the appropriateness of addressing both clinical and managerial issues within the supervisory process.
The results indicate that despite many professions being unsure of how best to deliver supervision, there is a common understanding that a structure combining clinical and managerial supervision, such as the KSF, may be useful. It is, however, recommended that the roles of appraiser and supervisor remain separate, because many researchers found conflict within this duality of role as having an impact upon the effectiveness of supervision. It is also recommended that further research be undertaken in order to evaluate formally the effectiveness of integrating the KSF into supervision.
