an international shift toward this form of supervision, driven by a broad consensus that
multidisciplinary teams produce better outcomes for service users, combined with a cost
saving agenda in which integrated working is seen as the key to increased fi nancial effi ciency.
Yet it is an area where practice is ahead of the research; few studies have investigated how
best to deliver effective supervision across disciplinary boundaries. What evidence exists tends
to focus on services for children and there is a dearth of information on supervising staff
working in adult services.
This book represents an opportunity to address this gap in the evidence base and offers
approaches to staff supervision from across a variety of different professional perspectives and
practice settings. It draws together a unique blend of researchers, practitioners and service
users who identify both the opportunities and challenges of interprofessional supervision, as
well as explore what works best in which context, for whom and why. It is concerned with
the outcomes of this type of supervision for organisations, workers and ultimately service
users. Contributions cover social work, healthcare (including hospitals, nursing and midwifery),
residential care, community learning disability, mental health and addiction services as well as
supervision of personal assistants. The book looks beyond the UK and presents international
evidence of the incidence and experience of interprofessional supervision with contributions
from Canada and New Zealand.
The book is divided into three sections. The fi rst part provides an international overview of key
research on interprofessional supervision. It includes an update on recent UK policy and practice
developments as well as a discussion of service user involvement in staff supervision. The
second section looks at innovative approaches to supervision and explores models developed
in a variety of practice domains. The third section provides personal accounts of peoples’
experiences of this type of supervision and includes contributions from service managers and
service users. It concludes with refl ections on the core themes of the book, making suggestions
for ‘where next?’ for research on supervision in adult services.
