Reflection is widely used in nurse education for both the learner to
demonstrate learning from one’s nursing actions and for the educator to assess
how such learning has been applied to clinical practice. There is much to be
learnt from any clinical situation but perhaps the most effective way to extract
issues from practice is to reflect on case examples. This paper outlines a reflective
care study of a specific baby in the neonatal intensive care unit (NICU)
illustrating how focusing on only one case within a short time frame can
capture issues for discussion and analysis. The focus of this paper is on the
learning points relating to a baby receiving HFOV specifically, during one
nursing shift.
