Abstract

Reflective practice is a process by which you think about your practice, analyse your decision making and link theory to practice. The objective of journal writing was to allocate students to three categories of non-reflector, reflector and critical reflector in the 10 weeks of clinical practice in radiography using the journal and also share the students’ writing experience. In this study, 30 medical imaging students from a public university wrote weekly reflective entries for 10 weeks of clinical practice in radiography. The reflective journals submitted by the students were categorized as 8 non reflectors; 12 reflectors and 10 critical reflectors. Journal writing assignments can benefit students by enhancing reflection, facilitating critical thought, expressing feelings, and writing what they feel comfortable sharing. Journal writing can be adapted into a student’s clinical practice to assist with bridging the gap between classroom and clinical knowledge.
