NURBN 3020 : Reflection On Theory And Learning


This assessment task requires you to submit a re?ective journal documenting an experience that you have had on clinical placement with regard to caring for a person living with chronic illness. This will include critically analysing the student’s individual opinion on the chronic illness, identifying the needs of people living with chronic illness, their caregiver, family and wider community.

Your re?ective assessment should include these headings: Using the Gibbs Cycle.

1. Description. Describe the patient who is living with chronic illness

2. Feelings. Outline and explore your thoughts, feelings and opinion at the time of caring for this patient. What were some of the issues that you noted the patient had to deal with regard to living with choric illness?

3. Evaluation. What worked well for this patient’s management? Was there anything that you noted that could have been improved or added within the patients care? What self-management plans were in place to help that patient and their families?

4. Analysis. Examine how this patients’ lives with their chronic illness in depth. Critical re?ection begins with reconstructing the experience of caring for this patient. Examine the historical and social factors that structure a situation. Start to theorise your original opinion and what you have learnt whilst caring for this patient? Has your original opinion changed? Use references such as research (recent studies are best), policy documents (from relevant bodies) or theory (from academic sources) to support your analysis. At this point you might try to identify an overarching issue, or key aspect of the experience that a?ected it profoundly for example, “communication” or “time”

5. Conclusion. Sum up the key things learned through the re?ective process, the main factors a?ecting your opinion, and how the incident/event could have better incorporated appropriate legal and ethical considerations

6. Action plan. A plan of action for the future is devised that would map alternative approaches should this you come across a situation that would include or represent the nature of your topic. What could you do to ensure a situation in the future that re?ects your topic incorporates the legal and ethical considerations nurses must observe when working with vulnerable people/communities?
