Presented by: Larry Gruppen, PhD
Professor of Learning Health Sciences
Director of the Master of Health Professions Education Program
Space is limited - please RSVP!
A light breakfast, coffee, and tea will be available starting at 8:45am. The workshop will begin promptly at 9am so give yourself extra time to settle in.
In this workshop, participants will examine their own, personal definitions of clinical reasoning, examine alternatives, and review the breadth of the construct in relationship to research and teaching. We will work towards a comprehensive model of clinical reasoning, but also consider the possibilities that greater distinctions need to be made to understand its complexity.
Participants will be able to:
- Describe their own definition of clinical reasoning
- Describe how that definition differs from the definitions of others
- Analyze the aspects of cognition and context that play a role in clinical reasoning
- Connect relevant assessment methods to various aspects of clinical reasoning
