The aim of the present study was to examine registered public health nurses' views and reported actions related to client supervision in community health care. Transcript-based, qualitative and interpretative content analysis was used to analyse the findings from six focus group interviews. The main findings represented the following themes: the components of the assessment basis related to choosing supervision as an intervention strategy, the strategies related to conducting supervision and the meaning of supervision as an intentional act. In conclusion, the registered public health nurses' reported model for conducting supervision seems to correspond with principles in the new strategies for health promotion initiated by the World Health Organization. Further research is needed to explore what the nurses really do when conducting supervision in order to provide extended knowledge about their model.
