Purpose This prologue introduces a clinical forum entitled “Reflections on Improving Clinical Practice” and orients the reader to the scope of articles included within it.

Method The purpose of the clinical forum is described, its lead article is introduced, and brief summaries of the 7 response articles are provided.
