Gibbs’ reflective cycle involves 6 steps:
Gibbs, G. (1988). Learning by doing: A guide to teaching and learning methods. Oxford: Further Education Unit, Oxford Brookes University.
• Describe in detail the event you are reflecting on.
• What happened; where were you; who else was there; why were you there; what were you doing; what were other people doing; what was your part in the event; what parts
did other people play in the event; what was the result?
• What were you thinking and feeling?
• Try to recall and explore the things that were going on inside your head.
• How were you feeling when the event started; what were you thinking about at the time; how did the event make you feel; how did other people make you feel; how did
you feel about the outcome of the event; what do you feel/think about the event now?
• What was good and bad about the experience?
• Evaluate and make a judgment about what has happened.
• What was good about the experience/event; what was bad about the experience/event; what didn’t go so well; what did you and other people do to contribute to the
situation (positively or negatively)?
• What sense can you make of the situation?
• Break the event down into its components.
• Explore the various components.
• Look back and ask more questions about previous answers like: What went well; what did you do well; what did others do well; what went wrong; what didn’t turn out
the way it was supposed to; who and what contributed to how things turned out?
• What else could you have done?
• Having worked through the different stages you now have more information to base your judgment on.
• What insights have you gained by working through the cycle; what have you learnt from the experience; what could you have done differently; what skills do you need
to develop, so that you can handle this type of situation better; how could this have been a more positive experience for everyone involved?
• If it arose again, what would you do?
• What would you do; would you do things differently; would you do things the same way; what actions do you need to take?

the removal ,I follow all the instruction and we went to bed side ,ask the consent of the patient and inform the patient about the procedure ,but then my preceptor
asked me where is the order of the removal I sad the doctor have him self notify me just to remove it now she says no we need to see the order we search the doctors
