I am a midwifery student and I am doing a reflection on an incident on placement and I am struggling to find a source to back up what I am saying:
During a placement, I suspected an illness in a newborn but when I asked my mentor, she said it was not likely to be what I suspected. On reflection, I agreed with my mentor because she must be correct over a 2nd year student.
So, I am trying to find something about human behaviour on how we assume that because someone is qualified/experiened etc, they must be correct.
Anyone have any ideas for a reference? I am guessing this is a in psychology area
