The Annual Supervision Report is published each year. In this publication, the Norwegian Board of Health Supervision attempts to shed light on aspects of health and social services that deserve attention and debate. The reports contain articles on different themes, based on the work of the Norwegian Board of Health Supervision, and in which the evaluations and opinions of the Norwegian Board of Health Supervision are presented. A statistical summary of supervision and cases of complaints is given in a separate section “Facts and Figures”. Authors from outside the Norwegian Board of Health Supervision are also invited to write articles.
