Do nurses have time for reflective practice?
Reflective practice is defined as the process of making sense of events, situations and actions that occur in the workplace.
Although many nurse education programmes (leading to registration) include modules on reflective practice, organised opportunities to reflect are rare in the busy, pressurised world of frontline practice.
Reflective practice is a key skill for nurses.
Engaging in regular reflection enables practitioners to manage the personal and professional impact of addressing their patients’ fundamental health and wellbeing needs on a daily basis.
