oa Curationis - Requirements for reflection in the critical care environment : original research

 

Abstract

Reflection is recognised as an important method for practice development. The importance of reflection is well documented in the literature, but the requirements for reflection remain unclear.


To explore and describe the requirements for reflection in the critical care environment as viewed by educators of qualified critical care nurses.
A focus group interview was conducted to explore and describe the views of educators of qualified critical care nurses regarding requirements for reflection in the critical care environment.
The themes that emerged from the focus group were buy-in from stakeholders - management, facilitators and critical care nurses, and the need to create an environment where reflection can occur.
Critical care nurses should be allowed time to reflect on their practice and be supported by peers as well as a facilitator in a non-intimidating way to promote emancipatory practice development.
