Abstract:This short discussion paper is inspired by the belief that continuing education is an essential catalyst for advancing professional practice. It proposes that reflection on practice is an essential component of continuing professional education and that experienced practitioners must reflect on practice in order both to develop personally and to move the profession forward. Inevitably, this entails questioning the status quo, facing conflict and initiating change. These processes are discussed here and the discussion concludes by considering some strategies for incorporating reflection through continuing professional education.
