CPD and reflective practice

Afternoon all

Reflective statements are sometime a challenge for those especially who have not used reflective practice previously.

I found this useful article about CPD which examines the tension between the need for professionals to demonstrate their continuing professional development (CPD) and quantifying the nature of incremental learning that comes through experience and reflection


I thought this may be of use for those who undertake reflective statements as part of their studies.

  • Thanks I will send this to my groups, they do struggle with the concept sometimes, so this is great.


  • This will be really helpful for participants studying DVP. Thanks for sharing!

    • Yes it will Gary and also for those on the blended programmes who write reflective statements for the workshops.

      All the best
