In the UK, government midwifery officers, Chief Nursing Officers (CNOs), Local Supervising Authority Midwifery Officers (LSAMOs), the Royal College of Midwives (RCM) and midwives are contributing to shaping the future direction of midwifery supervision. In Scotland, the Chief Midwifery Advisor & Associate Chief Nursing Officer has met with lead midwives and nurses, service users, researchers and educationalists to begin exploring the future design of supervision and a Taskforce with five work streams has been established to explore various options: 1. Model of supervision; 2. Education; 3. Resources; 4. Standards and Governance; 5. Evaluation. This report documents the process and findings from the first work stream – the model of supervision. The aim was to contribute to the development of an evidence based model of supervision to provide professional support for midwives.
