Workshop: Techniques for fostering clinical reasoning among learners

November 17, 2017  //  FOUND IN: Updates & Resources

This workshop is ideal for any faculty interested in elevating their own teaching skills, especially regarding fostering clinical reasoning and medical decision making.

Sound clinical reasoning is essential for quality patient care. Diagnostic error is found in 5-15 percent of cases in medicine, and three-fourths of these are cognitive errors. These statistics underscore the importance of developing the cognitive processes necessary for effective problem solving and diagnostic accuracy. Clinical reasoning, therefore, is a critical component of professional training.

Learning Objectives:

  • To discuss the importance of clinical reasoning in patient care and the diagnostic process.
  • To recognize the merits of examining the approaches of exemplary clinician-educators.
  • To identify tangible skills and techniques to foster clinical reasoning among learners.
  • To practice cultivating clinical reasoning in a safe and supportive learning environment.

Date: Wednesday, Dec. 20
