This title helps healthcare professionals in their approaches to reflection using a range of caring moments. Different kinds of reflection are explained and used to provide a variety of ways to learn from experience. Issues that are explored include: the self, experience, career, identity, expectation, contradiction, spirituality, agency and social care. The main focus is research and evidence-based practice, and the authors make a strong case for stories as research.
