ASSESSMENT 3B DETAILS
Topic: Clinical Handover Reflective Analysis
Due Date: 2pm on Wednesday the week after your
placement (See FLO site for specific due date)
Length 2000 words (+/- 10%)
Contribution to grade: 40%
REFELECTIVE ANALYSIS OF YOUR PLACEMENT
A reflection encourages you to think about your personal reaction to a situation and is a
very important part of your nursing practice. Being able to reflect on both positive and
negative aspects will guide your practice and facilitate development of your knowledge,
understanding and skills (Stonehouse, 2019). As a result, you will be able to provide
better, safer care for your patients.
This assessment is an analysis of the patient from the Clinical handover completed in
week 3 of your professional experience placement.
TASK
Reflect on one (1) aspect of your nursing care (and understanding) of the patient who
was the focus in your Clinical Handover which you completed in Assessment 3A.
In your reflective, indicate the aspect/s of care of this patient that you have chosen to
focus on and your rationale for this. It is expected that you use the structure of an
appropriate Reflective Cycle (you will find some examples in module 7).
Note: examples of aspects of care may include something specific about the patient, a
medication or treatment, a process, etc. If you are unsure, please ask your tutor.
This reflection is based on your Clinical Handover (Assessment 3A).
Your marker will look at the clinical handover you submitted prior to marking
this assessment.
