From what we know in clinical practice, supervision is either missing or, where it exists; it is inefficient, being assimilated to the bureaucratic control system.
The existence of clinical supervision as a specialization, the very experience of working with the patient as a professional, a good knowledge of the administrative and organizational policies of the institution, a good knowledge of the resources of the local community, are just a few of the elements which should characterize an efficient and good supervisor. It is not unusual for the clinical, administrative and supportive supervision to all be done at the same time. In this case, the supervision has to focus on the work performances of the supervised professional, and at the same time on the emotions, feelings and the way the professional perceives and copes with all of them. Moreover, it is well known and proven that in clinical supervision, the actual work with the patients exposes the professional to the risk of apparition of frustration and negative emotions caused, for example, by the suicide or the death of the patient or by the chronic disease of the latter. This thing can be better observed in working with patients with HIV/AIDS, where the particulars of the disease, the socio-psychological particularities of the clients, the big emotional stress, accelerate all these processes. As a conclusion, the present article wishes to be a pleading, “an alarm signal” for promoting an efficient clinical supervision (in general), especially in the work with the HIV/AIDS infected clients, for professionals like doctors, social assistants, and psychologists. This will offer them the emotional and know-how support, thus preventing the apparition of the burnout. This fact translates in equilibrate a functioning and high standard quality services.
