Is there a role for professional supervision in supporting the professional and personal wellbeing of the sonographic workforce? A literature review
|Authors||G. Coleman and Hyde, E.|
The sonographer workforce in the UK is under pressure due to chronic staff shortages and increased service demands. The Health and Care Professions Council and the Society of Radiographers both advocate for the use of professional supervision to support wellbeing and development, however the use of professional supervision is not widespread within the sonographer workforce. The aim of this literature review was to explore the evidence around the use of professional supervision and how this could support sonographer wellbeing.
Whilst important for emotional and professional support, this review found that there are conflicting pressures which can impact the effectiveness of supervision including the supervisory relationship itself and time and organisational pressures. Demands on the workforce made a significant impact on the availability of quality clinical supervision.
