Abstract

Date Presented 03/26/20

A grounded theory study explored reflective practice experiences of OTs from a national survey. Findings indicated reflection was triggered by challenges to knowledge, communication, safety, and ethics. Depth of reflection was associated with critical analysis, engagement in EBP activities, and actions taken to change practice. Future research needs to investigate integration of reflective practice with EBP and to examine curricular and philosophical barriers to integration.
