In this assignment, the reflection will be structured using the educational cycle (framework) of Graham Gibbs, as per the recommendations of Rolfe et al. (2001), in that it is often neither the subject nor the content of what we reflect on that is necessarily important, but rather its analysis in terms of what can be drawn out in understanding and learning.

In that way we can reconsider and rethink our previous knowledge and add new learning to our knowledge base so as to inform our practice.

There are basically six fundamental stages of reflective processes and these are: Stage 1: selecting a critical incident to reflect upon.... [tags: Reflection Upon An Incident]

Jasper illustrated this process graphically with the following Reflective Process equation.... [tags: Nursing Reflective Practice, Mental Incapacity]
