The chief executives of nine healthcare regulators, including the HCPC, have signed a joint statement – Benefits of becoming a reflective practitioner – outlining the processes and advantages of good reflective practice for individuals and teams.

Reflective practice allows an individual to continually improve the quality of care they provide and gives multi-disciplinary teams the opportunity to reflect and discuss openly and honestly.

The statement affirms that reflection plays an important role in healthcare, and brings benefits to service users, by:

  • Fostering improvements in practices and services;
  • Assuring the public that health and care professionals are continuously learning and seeking to improve.
