  • Within the past year, research has confirmed that non-expert community psychiatric nurses can safely and effectively deliver cognitive behaviour therapy (CBT) to patients with schizophrenia and their carers (Turkington et al., 2002). It is reasonable to expect that other disciplines within mental health would achieve similarly encouraging results (Turkington & Kingdon, 2000). Such interventions are greatly appreciated by patients and carers, improve job satisfaction for the practitioner and lead to improved insight and coping.

We, therefore, designed a literature review to evaluate the existing evidence about reflection and reflective practice and their utility in health professional education.

Another study, conducted by Fawzy and colleagues (1993) supported these findings.
