Benefits of Reflection

Reflection helps you to bridge gaps between theory and practice because it

  • advances nurses’ practice and knowledge about practice; 
  • leads to improved patient outcomes;
  • leads to more thoughtful practice and awareness of uncertainty;
  • allows healthcare practitioners to recognize and move beyond their own biases, adjust future behaviour, and apply professional nursing interventions based on EBP.
