Q. Should the record of my reflective discussion be stored in paper format rather than electronically in my portfolio?
A.

The five reflective accounts that a registrant must have for revalidation can be held manually or in an electronic portfolio using the NMC reflective accounts form.

The Reflective Discussion Form is to be used for the Reflective Discussion with your line manager or with another registrant. Although you are not required to submit this form to the NMC at any point, you should keep it safe as part of your records. You may choose to store the completed reflective discussion form in either paper or electronic format. Please make sure you respect the fact that this form contains personal data about your reflective discussion partner, and that you uphold your obligations in relation to confidentiality and data protection. You can familiarise yourself with your obligations in the NMC guidance on non-identifiable information, see page 40 of How to revalidate with the NMC.
