Reflecting on reflection in practice

This post courtesy of Anne Taylor-Vaisey:

From the September 2005 issue of the Australian Family Physician comes yet another article on reflection:

Robertson K. Reflection in professional practice and education. Aust Fam Physician 2005; 34(9):781-783.

Abstract: Reflection is a crucial process in the transforming of experience into knowledge, skills and attitudes. As such it is at the core of both learning and continually evolving professional practice. This article draws on literature from adult learning and medical education fields to present a theoretical framework for reflection and practical techniques for its application in general practice. It is directed toward the training of medical students and registrars on clinical rotations, but also for the established general practitioner.
