OBJECTIVES Critical incident analysis (CIA) is\none of the strategies frequently used to facilitate\nreflective learning. It involves the thorough\ndescription and analysis of an authentic and\nexperienced event within its specific context.\nHowever, CIA has also been described as\nhaving the potential to expose vulnerabilities,\nthreaten learners’ coping mechanisms and\nincrease rather than reduce their anxiety levels.\nThe aim of this study was to compare the\nanalysis of current critical incidents with that of\npast critical incidents, and to further explore\nwhy and how the former is more conducive to\nreflective learning and practice change than\nthe latter.
