The authors of this paper seek to consider how reflective practice is relevant to contemporary speech-language pathology practice. Drawing on comprehensive and diverse theoretical literature, it is suggested that reflective practice is a framework worthy of consideration because of its potential to: (1) foster the generation of knowledge from practice, (2) balance and contextualize science with patient care, (3) facilitate the integration of theory and practice, (4) link evidence-based practice with clinical expertise, and (5) contribute to the cultivation of ethical practice.
