AbstractAim: This systematic review will identify, appraise, and synthesise the best available qualitative studies exploring nurses’ experiences of peer group supervision. The review purpose draws from the synthesised evidence recommendations to enhance policy and implementation of peer group supervision in practice. Background: Clinical Supervision is increasing in acceptance as a means of professional and best practice support in nursing. Peer group supervision is a non-hierarchical, leaderless model of clinical supervision delivery and is an option for implementation by nursing management when prioritising staff support with limited resources. This systematic review will provide a synthesis of the qualitative literature regarding the nursing peer group supervision experience. Understanding the experience of peer group supervision from those participating may provide constructive insights regarding implementation of this practice to benefit both nurse and patient driven outcomes. Design: Included are peer reviewed journals focused on nurses’ experiences of participating in peer group supervision. Participants are registered nurses of any designation. Qualitative articles, written in English and relating to any area of nursing practice and/or speciality are included. The standards of the Preferred Reporting Items for Systematic Review and Meta-Analysis (PRISMA) Statement were used to guide the review. Two investigators independently screened titles, abstracts and selected full text studies describing the experience of peer group supervision. Pre-designed data extraction tools were utilised, and the review followed the Joanna Briggs Institute qualitative meta-aggregation approach with a hermeneutic interpretive analysis. Results: Results identified seven studies that met the inclusion criteria. A total of 52 findings that described the experiences of nursing peer group supervision are synthesised into eight categories. Four overarching synthesised findings resulted: 1. facilitating professional growth 2. trusting the group 3. professional learning experience and 4. shared experiences. Benefits such as sharing of experiences whilst receiving feedback and support were identified. Challenges identified related to group processes. Conclusions: The paucity of international research into nursing peer group supervision poses challenges for nurse decision makers. Significantly, this review provides insight into the value of peer group supervision for nurses regardless of clinical context and setting. The ability to share and reflect with nursing peers enhances both personal and professional aspects of practice. The worth of the peer group supervision model varied across studies however the outcomes provided important insights into facilitating professional growth, enabling a space to share experiences and reflect, and to build teams where trust and respect develops in groups. © 2023 Elsevier Ltd
