Clinical decision-making is important in patient-centred nursing, which is known in nursing education and research (1)

The Pedagogical Reflection Model (PRM) can provide a framework that supports students’ decision-making in patient-specific situations.

PRM is based on the assumption that clinical decision-making needs to take into account; 1) clinical experiences, 2) the perspective of the patient, 3) clinical observations and investigations, 4) knowledge about patients experiences of being a patient and ill, 5) medical knowledge about diseases, and 6) the organizational framework (2,3,4)(Figure 1)

The aims of this study were to explore how nurse students and clinical supervisors use PRM as method to reflect before, during and after PRM guidance in relation to clinical decisions in the first year of clinical practice
