Reflective practice in palliative care

Salins, N. (2018). Reflective practice in palliative care. Indian Journal of Palliative Care, 24(1), 1.

Abstract: Reflective practice is a way of being within the everyday clinical practice that makes us more mindful of the ways we think, feel, and respond to the situations. It is to look back at an experience, action, or an event with the intent of drawing insights to revise or better our practice. It also means pausing within a particular situation or experience to reframe the situation such that it makes sense and we proceed toward the desired outcome. However, for us to become better clinicians, we need to practice "reflection within the moment" which is a dynamic state of everyday practice where there is a constant interaction between the self (internal supervisor) and our past reflective experiences. Reflection within the moment is a conscious intent to realize a vision of practice that leads to "Mindful Practice." Mindful practice is the very essence of palliative care practice. Being mindful will help us to make the best judgments about situations by enabling us to look at the "bigger picture."
