About DPN

The DPN online community is an initiative founded by Aston University and the Values Exchange. 

What is Deliberative Practice?

Deliberative practice is an everyday problem-solving approach which balances personal, social and clinical factors in order to support effective, justifiable decisions. Deliberative practice includes elements of philosophy, psychology and ethics, alongside science, evidence and clinical skills. It is an ability that grows with knowledge, experience and self-awareness. Deliberative practice is sometimes also referred to as ‘critical thinking’, ‘reflective practice’ and ‘professional judgement’.
