Detailed Assessment Guidance A written reflection of a practice experience or case that was discussed in one of the clinical supervision groups. (4000 words 100% of module mark) Learning Outcomes By the end of this module students should be able to: 1. Demonstrate an awareness of reflective frameworks as a guide to understanding their practice experience. 2. Reflexively consider their experience of the group discussion and how this can influence their practice. 3. Demonstrate the ability to deconstruct and reconstruct practice experiences to gain a clearer understanding of the person and the student’s involvement in service delivery. 4. Apply principles of the NMC Code (2015) in order to consider its influence on practice and decision making. Reflection is an important and powerful strategy for you to use to develop your professional practice. It enables the linking of practice experience with theoretical aspects of learning to help you to develop, moving from novice to skilled practitioner. Reflection should enhance self-awareness, identifying personal strengths and the areas to focus on for development. Theory helps to direct that new learning by providing relevant knowledge. Critically viewing both ourselves and new knowledge is very important. Consider the knowledge that you have acquired, the skills you have developed and feelings you have about different situations that you have encountered and about your own development. If you maintain a reflective log this will provide you with a range of useful material that you may choose to reflect on. Assignment should be written and formatted according to CCCU assignment writing guidelines. Specific Guidance: Write a reflection upon one experience of being in the group supervision (conversation had in the group). This may be a case that you brought to the group for discussion or an issue that another student brought to the group. You may use a reflective framework to help structure your reflection or you may wish to refer to theories of reflection in your account of learning through group clinical group experience. You may use subheadings if you wish. The reflection may be in both first and third person as appropriate. For example when introducing the assignment, you might choose either – “For this assignment I will… “ or “This assignment will….” When describing your practice experience or case, and your feelings, it is easier to write in the first person. Here please use “I” rather than “the author” or “the student nurse”. Introduction: Produce an introduction which identifies the aims and objectives of the assignment (based upon the module learning outcomes) and signposts the topic for reflection and any reflective framework you intend to use. Main Body: If you have identified a reflective framework make sure that you actually use it to structure your assignment. Regardless of framework, ensure you include sufficient description of the experience or case to properly contextualise your discussion. Be aware that much of the marks will be allocated to your analysis and your engagement with the literature. Make sure to consider how the group responded to the topic. Conclusion: Include a summary of your key reflective learning and the impact of group discussion.
