Abstract [en]

A reflective team (RT) is a team of professional carers who reflect on a specific caring issue under the direction of an RT leader. The goal for the reflective process is to accomplish care improvement based on research and proven experience, and the first step is to reflect upon the competence that already exists in the context where RT takes place. This study aims to bring previous unarticulated competence for dementia care to the surface, after it has been reflected during RT sessions. Ten staff nurses who work close to patients with dementia and attend RT sessions on regular basis were interviewed about their competence for dementia care. Through a phenomenographic analyze two qualitatively separated categories emerged; general caring skills and specific dementia caring skills. It is concluded that specific skills for dementia care build on general caring skills, and that tacit knowledge can emerge to proven experience when it has been reflected in RT.
