Reflection

6 posts in this topic

Hi

 

Can anyone give advice regarding how to do a 'reflection'?

 

I'm a little bit unsure as to the format that they are expecting

 

Can anyone guide to any examples - perhaps online?

 

Thanks in advance!

Reflection process template ( roughly based on RCPsych/ GMC guidelines)
 
Title and Description of the Activity
 Include the date of activity
 Number of continuing professional development (CPD) hours claimed
Why was this activity selected for CPD?
 
1 Describe the purpose of the learning activity.
This might be aligned with the domain as described by the College (clinical, academic, professional) or by the GMC (knowledge, skills and performance; safety and quality; communication and teamwork; maintaining trust).
 
 2 Describe what was learnt and the key messages.
These could be linked to other experience and knowledge. Critically and objectively analyse the learning taken away from the activity.
 
3 Consider the application of the learning to specific practice.
Consider the relevance to work and any practical obstacles to implementation. What might be done differently in the future?
 
4 Identify further actions.
Have gaps in knowledge or skills been identified? In order to improve practice, what else is needed? Are there further learning requirements? What, when and how will change take place? How can completion of the objective be evidenced at appraisal? This final step might identify further learning required in order to complete the PDP or identify items for a future PDP.

That is a really helpful template.  However your reflection is just that - whatever you reflect on a situation.  Does not have to be formally structured if you don't want it to be. As long as you describe the situation and how you felt and then what you learnt from it.
