Abstract or Summary

Since reflective writing encourages practitioners to make sense of their experiences and identify their learning requirements it is important they are experienced with this tool. Despite having used reflective writing within assessments over the previous two years of study only six of the third year midwifery students studying toward a Bachelor of Midwifery felt confident about using reflective writing in a personal sense at the beginning of the year. Using a questionnaire the students were asked about their experience of writing reflectively. The following paper describes their responses.
