    Ask yourself
    'having looked at all the evidence, what do you now think caused X, Y and Z' or
    'what new theories do you now have about the way the world works', or
    'what has this taught you about the way that you tend to behave or react'

    Re: How to write a reflection??

    Been putting off writing reflections for weeks now cos I just didn't know how to start but thanks to this thread I am going to attempt it now! I do have a question though... I have to write 2 1000 reflections per placement so by the end of the first year I will have written 8(!) but do I start them all in the same way?? e.g. I will use Gibbs... In accordance with NMC... Just wondering if I can cheat and use the same introduction for each reflection. Sorry if that's a stupid question, I'm still not 100% sure what I'm doing and it's not even been mentioned in uni other than we have to do it!

    you need to have the exact focus to the breastfeeding - what exactly are you looking at? positions, latch, milk production....... then look up on your unis databse for any reaserch with those key words. reading around will get the juices flowing.

    when you have this info - discuss it, find alternite view points on what you did/didint do put it all together and you've got your annalysis section sorted :)
