Resources for your reflective journal

If you are using your eFolio journal for reflection, you might like to try using the ‘SOAP’ template; it can help to order your thoughts and pull out all of the learning from a clinical experience.

You can also use it as a basis for discussion with peers, your personal tutor or in the Professionalism tutorials in the 2nd and 4th semesters of the BM5 course.
