Teaching Clinical Reasoning Skills: Core Concepts for Developing a Scholarly Curriculum
Noemi Adame, Matthew Kapklein, Geeta Singhal, Michele Long, Rebecca Blankenburg
At the conclusion of this session, participants will be able to:

  1. Identify and understand the elements of clinical decision-making
  2. Analyze methods for teaching and evaluating clinical reasoning skills
  3. Use appropriate educational design methods and evaluation tools to develop a clinical reasoning skills curriculum using a scholarly approach

This workshop will provide the participant with the tools to develop a clinical reasoning skills curriculum for all types of learners using a scholarly approach. We will introduce the participant to the GNOMES (Goals, Needs, Objectives, Methods, Evaluation, Scholarship) framework for curriculum design, as well as core concepts of teaching clinical reasoning such as common diagnostic errors and how to avoid them. We will also discuss methods to assess clinical reasoning skills such as the Diagnostic Thinking Inventory and Script Concordance Test. The workshop will consist of brief large group didactics, a large group discussion and two facilitated small-group hands-on sessions where the participants will work on developing a clinical reasoning skills curriculum. Participants will leave the workshop with a usable framework to introduce and implement CR curricula at their home institutions.
