Welcome to the second entry in this new column. If you missed last month’s initial column, go online and get caught up. If you did read it, how did the two exercises go this month? I left you with two assignments, the first just noticing and asking, “How did that happen?” whenever something novel occurred or a situation was resolved that required creativity. The other task was to reflect on a time you did something creative and analyze what happened, why and how. If you didn’t, pause a moment and do so now.
As creative physiotherapists, this discipline of noticing and reflecting is part of our clinical mastery development. Frequently in the realities of practice and home life, this habit gets squeezed out by other short term urgencies. Months fly by and maybe then we realize there’s been no reflection, just hustling to keep up with our work. So if you didn’t get to reflect this month, just carry it over and give yourself a scheduled time to do so at least monthly for the rest of the year. That will be a great enhancement to your evidenced-based practice.
