Abstract

Having worked with healthcare and medical trainees and practitioners for a number of years as medical educators, we have often noticed a glazed, irritated or frustrated look in the eyes of many of them when the terms reflective practice or reflection are used. These two sets of words have come to be known as the ‘R’ words. This has prompted us to consider the modern origins of the concept of reflective practice and also the etymological roots and philosophical foundation of the meaning of the term ‘practice’. At the same time, this has raised issues of who owns the process and product of reflective practice (e.g. individuals; peers; tutors; assessors) and whether the outcomes should be formally assessed given the associated ethical and authenticity dilemmas that often seem to arise from such assessment.
