Introduction

Reflection is part of everyday life and a crucial part of learning. By reflecting on our actions and thought processes we learn from experience. For Physiotherapists clinical reflection should form part of their everyday practice and continued educational goal settings. Some professional organisations even require clinical reflective writing as part of the CEU portfolio of their members. Clinical reflection guides our professional development, clinical reasoning, and helps us to understand why we do what we do. The course will introduce clinical reflection for both the student and the clinician. The different types of reflection will be introduced as well as clinical reasoning and how it is different for the novice and experienced physiotherapist. Clinical reflection for portfolio writing and tips for developing reflection skills will be discussed.
