Introduction

Many different reflective frameworks have been developed to support the important activity of clinical reflection. These frameworks while different have many similarities and can be used in clinical reflection while treating a patient, thinking back on a specific patient scenario, as part of training and educational goal development, and in portfolio writing. It is important to be aware of and practice using different frameworks in order to determine the right framework for any particular circumstance. Different reflective frameworks will be discussed with information on how and when to apply them for clinical reflection. Reflective writing and thinking will be explored for both the student and the practising physiotherapist. Practical advice will be shared on how to undertake critical reflection in different situations.
