Reflection models and frameworks.
Reflection of a practice experience/case.
Description (Step 1)
Feelings (Step 2)
Evaluation (Step 3)
Analysis (Step 4)
Conclusion (Step 5)
Action Plan (Step 6)
The aim of this paper is to provide a reflection of a practice experience/case in my workplace. I am a student nurse and have no previous hospital experience. A practice experience/case is a patent made a complaint against me to the consultant because of giving wrong information.
The consultant called me and also informed my mentor. Both consultant and my mentor advised me to be cautious and not to provide wrong information, and asked me to call doctor or senior nurses when any questions raised by patients. Before giving a reflection of this practice experience this paper discusses several reflection models and frameworks developed over time.
The key reflection models and frameworks discussed in this paper are Schon’s (1992) Reflection Framework, Driscoll’s (2007) Reflection Model, Barton (1970) Model of Reflection, Gibb (1988) Reflective Cycle, and Kolb’s (1984) Reflective Model.
Then, this paper uses Gibb’s (1988) Reflective Cycle to reflect upon my practice experience. Using this model/framework the reflection is grouped into six sub-sections: Description; Feeling; Evaluation; Analysis, Conclusion; and Action Plan.
The last section of this paper concludes the summary of my key reflective learning as well as the impact of group discussion. Across this refection confidentiality of times, places and persons are protected strictly following the faculty of health and wellbeing confidentiality statements and applying the principles of NMC Code (2015).

Reflection models and frameworks:
There are several reflection frameworks and models that are developed by different experts to assess the previous experiences. According to Dye (2011), the models of reflection established by Schon (1992) include two features: 1) reflection-on-practice and 2) reflection-in-action.
Zeichner and Liston (2016) have generalized the work of Schon by including the knowing-in-action. However, they suggest that practitioners tailor or customize their theory and knowledge to the presented condition. Knowing-in-action recognizes five methods (including personal, empirical, aesthetic, ethical knowing) of knowing-in-action.
Reflection-in-action is the cooperative form of reflection that inspires persons to reflect or observe on previous conditions from the viewpoint of themselves as well as of others nearby them at the event’s time (Dye, 2011). As Paget (2011) notes, self-reflection or reflections on the events which take place in the environment of work are very significant for the persons in the nursing profession.
Reflection permits the medical experts to improve their present knowledge, developing learning opportunities and escape errors that may have been created in previous (Royal College of Nursing, 2012). Reflection in action by the experts Schon (1992) has been modified from Schon (1983) it is to conduct with the reflecting in a moment devoid of troubling care. It includes the ‘on your feet’ thinking. Zeichner and Liston (2016) recommend that while this may be a difficult procedure it is by far effective while illuminating which patients’ needs are being achieved. As Schon (1992) notes,…………
