Rolfe et al (2001) Framework for reflective practice
This is a simple model which poses the questions ‘What? So what? And Now what?’
What – describe the situation; achievements, consequences, responses, feelings, and problems.
So what – discuss what has been learnt; learning about self, relationships, models, attitudes, cultures, actions, thoughts, understanding, and improvements.
Now what – identify what needs to be done in order to; improve future outcomes, and develop learning
It is believed that the third and final stage is of the greatest importance in contributing to practice Rolfe et al (2001).
