Abstract [en]

This paper addresses the issue of reflective practice, as suggested by Schön. Theaim is to analyze instances of reflective practice in elder care, in order to depictindividual and collective work. Reflective practice is prevailing as a way ofemphasizing the value of practical knowledge and enhancing its status. Reflexivityis thinking about what and why we do something. Moreover, reflexivity is away of incorporating knowledge with our own personal selves, making it a verypersonal matter. Using reflective practice in elder care enables learning, leadingto improved quality of care. However, individual reflection must be accompaniedby collective reflection; this is crucial to improve quality of care.
