Values Based Reflective Practice, otherwise known as VBRP®, is a model which has been developed by NHS Scotland to help staff deliver the care they came into the service to provide. It does this by promoting regular inter-disciplinary group reflection.
VBRP® can be used by anyone working in health and social care and is applicable across all disciplines and professional groups. VBRP® uses the principles of reflective practice to enable practitioners to understand and recognise their personal and professional value and by doing so supports them in delivering safe, effective and person-centred care.
Values Based Reflective Practice is an intentional way of reflecting on past practice, in the present, in order to improve practice in the future. VBRP® offers a structured, refletive method which is designed to help staff deliver the care they came into the service to provide.
VBRP® promotes person-centred care, engages in dialogue between personal and organisational values, attitudes and behaviours. It enhances staff fulfilment and turns history (what we have done) into learning. It supports staff members to better manage their own wellbeing and resilience, and helps them to develop increased reflexivity in their practice.
Ultimately, its goal is to improve the care provided to patients and service users.
VBRP® is a national initiative created, designed and owned by NHS Education for Scotland (NES).
Registered VBRP® Trainers: those who have successfully undergone VBRP® Train the Trainer courses, and are NES recognised trainers, can deliver VBRP® training.
