Introduction: 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.

Method: 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.

Results and conclusion: The evaluation confirmed that the workshop design did support participants in developing the skills and confidence to implement the observed practice programme.
