  • What issues seem significant?
  • What was I trying to achieve?
  • Why did I respond as I did?
  • What were the consequences of that for the patient/others/myself?
  • How were others feeling?
  • How did I know this?
  • Why did I feel the way I did within this situation?

  • What factors (either embodied within me or embedded within the environment) were influencing me?
  • What knowledge did or could have informed me?
