In October 2016, the Academy worked alongside the Royal College of Paediatrics and Child Health, to produce guidance for doctors in training about entering information into an e-portfolio. In light of the recent discussions surrounding the legal case of Dr Bawa Garba and the use of reflection, it has been agreed that the Academy will work with the General Medical Council, the Academy Trainee Doctors Group, the BMA’s Junior Doctors Committee and the Conference of Post-Graduate Medical Deans (COPMeD) to revise reflective practice guidance. As the production of this will take some time, this paper aims to set out in advance the 10 key principles of reflective practice for doctors in training to use.
