I am sure this won’t be the only CPD23 post with this title. Thing 5 is reflection and this will be familiar territory for anyone engaged in meeting the information needs of NHS staff and nursing students in particular. I can walk you blindfolded to the reflective practice books. Reflection is also a regular topic in HILJ with a systematic review (free online) from Maria Grant in 2007 and others well worth a look (go to the site and then search for reflection – many of you will have HILJ in one of the bundles your institution subscribes to or ask your local NHS Librarian).
I make regular attempts to be more systematic in my reflection but like most am incosistent. My big hope is that CILIP will bring in mandatory CPD and will help us do this by offering a simple online track and reflect type tool (like pebblepad). At least that is the excuse I am using today.
