(2011) ‘Planning and writing an evidence-based critical reflection’, Journal of Paramedic Practice, vol. 3, no. 4, pp. 190 – 195. 17 Reflection on the Application of Healthcare Skills Introduction I will use the Gibbs Reflective Learning Cycle to reflect on my experiences and professional practice as a paramedic. This reflective theory is quite practical because it allows for a clear description of facts, and an assessment of the medical practitioner’s reactions to the patient(s) at the scene of an accident or other crisis. It also allows for a paramedic to be able to make sense of all that he or she experienced while expending medical care to traumatised people. This is particularly important because it allows the paramedic to reflect on if he would alter anything if he was confronted by another similar incident. In addition, paramedics are usually the first people to arrive at disturbing scenes that would be frightening and traumatising to people. They are required to keep their feelings in check and avoid panic even as they deal with injured people. The repression of feelings of shock and fear is not healthy, and it is important for paramedics to be able to express their true feelings about the situations they face on a daily basis without the fear of disapproval (Mamede, Schmidt and Penaforte, 2008). In keeping with the professional conduct principle of confidentiality which is stipulated in the Nursing and Midwifery Council (NMC), the real names of the patients I met will not be used in this essay (Nursing and midwifery Council (NMC) 2008). Importance of Using the Gibb’s Reflective Model The Gibb’s reflective model allows for a more meaningful reflective method by encouraging a more in-depth enquiry of past actions (Dougherty and Lister 2008). This will allow the paramedic to be able to make better decisions in future. It could be said any reflective practice in my area of specialty, which concerns paramedic work, has always been organised the debriefing process that is conducted after paramedics attend to patients in a serious accident (Duffy, 2009). The debriefing process can also be conducted among co-workers in the cab of the ambulance (Nursing and midwifery Council (NMC) 2008). The first principle that is addressed in the Gibb’s reflective model concerns the description of an event or incident (Blaber, 2012). One of my first experiences as a paramedic was in treating the casualties in a road accident. My crewmate who is an ambulance technician and I got an emergency call from the ambulance control office late one evening about a serious accident that had occurred at a city intersection. A man had been knocked down by speeding car. As the city intersection is not far from where we were, we were able to rush to the scene without having to encounter traffic jams. Learning Objective One – Comprehensive History Taking Process There was a growing crowd at the scene of the accident that appeared to be wary about moving the wounded victim even though various people were fanning him.
