Description BackgroundThis paper explores the attitudes of practitioners to the use of video assisted structured reflection in simulated clinical scenarios and real-life clinical experiences in the context of a Flipped Classroomto encourage and support reflection and reflective practice among pre-hospital emergency care practitioners in Ireland.  It also examines the experiences of practitioners who participated in this process.MethodologiesThis paper is part of a larger project which consisted of tree cycles of action research.  Data was collected via an online survey questionnaire, and by conducting a series of semi-structured interviews with various stake-holders.  These included all three clinical levels of pre-hospital emergency care practitioners and educators from emergency service providers, private ambulance services, and voluntary organisations.FindingsWhen combined, a simulation experience with audio-visual recording and a structured model of reflection in the context of a Flipped Classroom has become a powerful learning experience. The process of a simulation experience with audio-visual recording, and a structured model of reflection appears to dovetail very nicely with the concept of the Flipped Classroom. The review of footage from audio-visual recording in the real-life clinical context provides a reliable and accurate means of evaluating clinical performance. Concerns were raised about the potential for abuse and misuse of audio-visual recordings. There are perceptions that audio-visual footage of real-life clinical experiences could potentially be used for unintended purposes such as, disciplinary procedures.RecommendationsSince the process of combining a simulation experience with audio-visual recording and a structured model of reflection in the context of a Flipped Classroom has shown great promise as a learning experience, a larger scale pilot study is proposed. Develop a pilot programme with student practitioners during their undergraduate internship, and evaluate its findings. Develop a policy which clearly defines the use of audio-visual recording footage prior to the commencement of the pilot programme. A Learning Contract for all participants and faculty, including a confidentiality agreement, must be in place prior to the establishment of the process.
