The benefits of reflective practice

Board room

Nine healthcare regulators have published a joint statement on the benefits of reflective practice.

The statement, signed by the chief executive of each of the regulators, shares the benefits and highlights the importance of reflective practice for individuals, teams and recipients of health and care services. It sets out:

  • common expectations for reflective practitioners
  • how reflection can be more effective, and less of a tick box exercise
  • how to develop multi professional teams of reflective practitioners.

We would encourage employers to cascade this information to their senior management teams to ensure practitioners have a safe space to use reflective practice as a means of development and learning, and to drive improvements in the provision of high quality and safe care.

Read the statement in full.
