The more astute amongst you will notice that the models presented and discussed might be familiar to you as those used in assisting you with reflecting on your practice. 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
