24 – Reflective Diary

24 - Reflective Diary

Writing a reflective diary is a powerful self-reflective and self-evaluation tool.

  • Set aside time for writing
  • Allow time for the sifting of thoughts and ideas
  • Do not worry about style, presentation
  • Remember that the aim is to facilitate reflection on practice
  • Find evidence to back-up your thoughts: what evidence do I have for what I have just written? 
  • Begin by asking: How do I see my role as a caregiver? What values do I believe in?
