The basis of this reflective report is to critically emphasize the Leicester Clinical Assessment Tool (LCAT) undergone whilst on placement in an orthopaedic ward. The reflection shows the engagement of safe, confident, competent, compassionate quality care whilst recognising the individual. To link theory to practice, the Driscoll’s (2007) model of reflection will be used. This model incorporates three stages, what? So what? and Now what?. This model has been chosen due to the clear structure and guide incorporated, which is a preferred reflective style. The Driscoll’s (2007) model includes trigger questions that allow the process of critical reflective thoughts, in an easy precise format.

The Nursing and Midwifery Council (NMC, 2015) regulates all nurses and midwives practicing in the United Kingdom. In this guidance all nurses and midwives are required to use feedback as a chance for reflecting and learning, to improve practice. According to Wrigglesworth (2016) reflections require critical thinking, to analyse the incident and explore associated research as well as up to date evidence. Reflections are also vital in developing an understanding of nursing skills (Nunn, 2012). This was discovered in the past, upon reflection of past learning which allowed a full understanding of the concepts of what was gained from the skills carried out.
