Investigating the Roles and Functions of Clinic Supervisors
-----------------------------------------------------------
in three Districts in the Eastern Cape Province (South Africa)

http://www.hst.org.za/research/clinicsuper.htm

This research report presents the outcomes of an investigation into 
the roles and functions of clinics supervisors in three districts in 
the Eastern Cape Province against the background of health sector re-
form in the Province.

It describes in some detail the research process of Participative Ac-
tion Research, which the research team undertook, before presenting 
the main findings and recommendations.

Central among the findings is the fact that clinic supervision is 
hampered by unresolved governance issues which lead to continued 
fragmentation of services, unclear roles and lines of accountability, 
excessive meeting loads and unstable working conditions. The report 
also concludes that, while clinic supervisors have a great range of 
skills at their disposal, training and support, particularly in the 
areas of organizational and human resource management, are an ongoing 
and urgent requirement.
