  1. 1. One of the learning objectives / instructional goals of the Ethics and Professionalism elective course on “Patient Safety: Better Knowledge for Safer Care” introduced to Kuwait University since 2005 was to “Enable students to make judgments about the safety of clinical practice through the use of reflective thinking & writing tools to enhance their moral development as future doctors” achieving a higher category of learning based on the Cognitive Domains of Learning (Blooms’ Taxonomy, Fig 1). INTRODUCTION: Patient Safety Education For Future Doctors: A Reflective Strategy Eating Unsafe Culture Slowly and Surely Manal Bouhaimed,[1,2] Hossam Elamir[3] [1] Department of Community Medicine and Behavioural Sciences, Kuwait University Faculty of Medicine [2] Department of Surgery, Kuwait University Faculty of Medicine [3] Department of Quality and Accreditation, Mubarak Al-Kabeer Hospital, MOH Fig 1: Bloom’s Taxonomy (Revised) Remembering Understanding Applying Analyzing Evaluating Creating Can the student distinguish between different parts?

A Students' Reflection On A Patient Safety Required Area Exploring students' Feelings Counts in Education: The Use of Gibbs Reflective Cycle in Teaching Clinical Ethics Inpatient Wards TPN Unit Laboratory Treatment Rooms Pharmacy Medical Records Operating Theatre The following reflective tools were used in an academic context for teaching this elective course: • Gibbs Reflective Cycle (Fig 2). • The Kolb’s cycle (Fig 3). • The Burton’s approach (Fig 4). The use of these tools in a hospital based rotations (Fig 5a) aimed at: Looking back at an event or having a hands-on experience. Analyzing the event, ideas or emotions/responses related to the event (thinking in depth and from different perspectives, trying to explain what happened, for example with reference to the WHO Nine Patient Safety Solution (Fig 5b). Thinking carefully about what the event or idea means for them and their on-going development as future care providers and practicing professionals. METHODS: The outcomes of these reflective exercises over the years were presented at different conferences and meetings (Fig 5c). The following are some examples: • The Gibbs Reflective Cycle was applied to the students’ experience of reviewing 33 unidentifiable medical records for the application of “Performance of Correct Procedure at Correct Body Site” protocol in the hospital. • The Kolb’s cycle was applied to the students’ experience of examining 152 patients for hospital adherence to the “Avoiding Catheter and Tubing Misconnections” protocol. • The Burton’s approach of reflection was used during the assessment of 41masked non-identifiable consent forms to assess to the pre-intervention patient’s verification protocol. Results: It was evident that the students in this elective course successfully developed a new realization of the role of human factors in errors and the concept of system failure suggesting that reflective education for patient safety can be successfully used in patient safety education. Conclusion: What is most important, interesting, useful, relevant about the object event or idea? Interpretation: What happened? Description: What have I learned from this? What does this mean for my future?
