Critical reflection

Reflection, in simple terms, is learning from experience. It refers to the process of reviewing an experience and making new meaning and interpretations of it in the light of: other perspectives; new evidence; changes or new experiences or contexts; or new information. It also involves devising new guidelines for action on the basis of the review. How it is done will vary, depending on the theoretical framework used, or the model subscribed to. (DHSC, 2018)
