Reflective practice has emerged in the U.K. and beyond as an important issue not just in nursing but in many other professions. However, it remains problematic; it is difficult to conceptualize and many aspects of it are open to debate. Reflective practice is also contentious because, at a fundamental level, it raises a number of important issues for professional practitioners and the way they view their practice. The intention of this paper is to: • • explore some of the issues that have emerged as the profession of nursing and other professions have gained a better understanding of reflective practice; • • broaden the scope of the debate and refocus it; • • raise issues which are in need of further research.
