Reflective practice reviews

The Reflective Practice meeting aims to create a learning opportunity through supporting a case reflection.  It can consider single or cross agency reflection and decision making across multi-agency working.  All agencies, both statutory and voluntary, who have been involved with a child at any time may request to meet or be invited to attend a meeting to reflect on process and progress of case management.  It is focused on learning not blame and serves to support sound professional decision making across all agencies.  Reflections should aim to consider whether the right help was provided by the right person(s) at the right time or whether alternative actions would have influenced or improved outcomes.

A Reflective Practice meeting toolkit has been developed on behalf of the Portsmouth Safeguarding Children Board to assist agencies apply reflective practice effectively.

In September 2015 the PSCB completed a review of inter-agency working with a child in acute care.  The outcomes of this review can be read here
