Overview

Reflective practice has been widely adopted as a successful method for developing nursing across many specialties. The International Textbook of Reflective Practice in Nursing provides a definitive synthesis of the current international literature and activity surrounding reflective practice within nursing. It provides a detailed meta-analysis of reflective practice, critical reflection and reflexivity, addressing differences among them. The International Textbook of Reflective Practice in Nursing provides practical guidance on applying reflective practice to education, practice, and research in nursing, adopting the Honor Society of Nursing, Sigma Theta Tau International's structure of knowledge, service, and learning. The knowledge section introduces the concept of reflection as a research and evaluative tool. The service section focuses on the ways reflection has been applied and implemented in clinical practice. The learning section examines evidence that contributes to the understanding of reflection as fundamental to the nursing curricula. The contributors to this book are experienced writers and practitioners from a wide diversity of specialities, including critical care, mental health, community teaching, and research and are known internationally for their contribution to nursing.
