However, by developing these models further, it is possible to understand that these models are not simply a tool by which to describe and highlight various issues from a clinical incident, but about beginning to develop a life-long approach to challenging and learning from these incidents.Learning OutcomesAfter completing this module you will be able to:• Understand the key concepts of critical thinking• Provide an overview of reflective and reflexive practice• Explore the theories of reflection-in-action and refection-on-action• Describe and explain the four critical thinking models for reflective learning
