Using structured reflection on a critical incident to develop a professional portfolio

Carol Hilliard Clinical facilitator, St Anne’s Burns Unit, Our Lady’s Children’s Hospital, Crumlin, Dublin, Ireland

This article demonstrates reflective practice by examining a critical incident that took place at a children’s burns unit. The development of reflective skills is documented using a method of structured reflection. The concepts of aesthetics, personal knowing, empirics and ethics are considered to reflect on the critical incident. Reflection is considered in the context of developing a portfolio to analyse and demonstrate learning in practice.
