Using Reflection in Health Professions Education
Reflective Practice is a learned skill that facilitates exploration of your personal context in order to identify our assumptions, biases, and perhaps most importantly, the way we think. Understanding how we think and the sources of our individual way of thinking allows us to be more mindful of the way we communicate with others and make decisions. Having this self-awareness improves patient care, regardless of our profession, specialty, or environment. Developing the “habit of thought” that is Reflective Practice is a lifelong endeavor that can have a dramatic positive impact on both our professional and personal lives. Reflective Practice (RP) is an interprofessional and longitudinal course at the Uniformed Services University (USU). This full day, interactive, interprofessional faculty development workshop will provide support, knowledge and tools for faculty who are teaching the RP course at USU. Through large group presentations and small group activities, participants will learn about the reflective practice course (structure, goals, strategic objectives), develop their knowledge of reflection in medical education, small group teaching and also practice assessment of reflective writing . Additionally, participants will learn about the importance of emotion as a component of clinical reasoning and practice mindfulness to increase presence and self-awareness.
This activity provides continuing education for physicians, nurses, pharmacists, pharmacy technicians, and psychologists. A certificate of attendance is available for other attendees
- Describe how and why to use reflection as part of learning.
