The terms 'critical reflection' and 'reflective practice' are at the heart of modern healthcare. But what do they really mean?
Building on its ground-breaking predecessor, entitled Critical Reflection for Nursing and the Helping Professions, this heavily revised second edition analyses and explores reflection. It presents a structured method that will enable you to both challenge and develop your own practice.

This book is the essential guide to critical reflection for all students, academics and practitioners.

New to this Edition:
- Expanded to meet the needs of all healthcare practitioners
- Redefines self-evaluation as a catalyst for personal and professional development
- Fully updated edition of a respected book: now includes a chapter on the rise of professional knowledge
