Abstract

An action research study resulted in an observed practice programme to advance the reflective skills of occupational therapists and physiotherapists. Action research offered a way of drawing on practitioners’ knowledge and experience. The programme was introduced through a one-day workshop to occupational therapists and physiotherapists of varying levels of experience within a mental health organisation. A purpose-designed questionnaire was used to evaluate learning outcomes and to capture participants’ response to the workshops. The evaluation confirmed that the workshop design did support participants in developing the skills and confidence to implement the observed practice programme.
