Category: Professionalism

With a better understanding of critical reflection, along with some advance preparation, medical practitioners can develop the process of reflective practice. This knowledge will both magnify experiential learning and also develop reflective skills for lifelong learning. When applied deliberately, critical reflection can help develop innovation, problem-solving, critical thinking, autonomy, and decision-making. This module will enhance your understanding of critical reflection, identify the benefits of reflective practice, and address barriers.
