Representation of Topics Regarding Clinical Supervision in Nursing in National and International Journals
Aim: The aim of this paper was to examine the representation of topics of clinical supervision in nursing in national and international journals.
Methods: A Databases Medline, EBSCO and Hrčak were retrospectively researched. The research encompassed nursing journals published from 2011 to 2015. MeSH keywords were used as well. The availability of articles in full text was examined by PubMed Central and by using PERO, a search engine for electronic resources online, which is an online source of journals with articles available in full text to the Croatian scientific and academic community. A total of 168 articles and 54 journals were included in this research.
Results: The topic of clinical supervision in nursing has not been found in any of the papers published in Croatian journals. There were 168 scientific papers about clinical supervision in nursing in 54 international journals. In the “Journal of Nursing Management” there was a trend of a decreasing number of published scientific papers (Cochran–Armitage test p< 0.0001). In the Medline database there were 43 journals. Most journals were published in the USA, 23 of them. A total of 29 articles are available in full form. OvidSP enables access to the highest number of articles, 18 (62.1%), while PERO search engine found no articles in full form.
Conclusion: In national journals in Croatia there are no topics regarding clinical supervision in nursing, but there are some in international journals.
