A time to reflect

Hazel Powell Community charge nurse, Borders Primary Care Trust

Hazel Powell spells out the individual, professional and organisational benefits of reflective practice

There are many definitions of reflective practice, but most authors agree it consists of learning about and developing practice through the analysis of events. This article explores the individual, professional and organisational issues arising from implementing reflective practice. It includes an example from practice in a learning disability service to highlight some of these key issues.

Learning Disability Practice. 5, 8, 16-18. doi: 10.7748/ldp2002.
