Utilization of a Blueprint to Advance Clinical Reasoning in the Clinical Setting

Sponsored by the APTA Colorado CE SIG

Clinical reasoning is a relevant skill for physical therapy students to learn during clinical experiences. This course offers a guide in teaching clinical reasoning to students in various stages of learning. Course participants will be able to discuss the significance of infusing the learning sciences into the teaching and learning of clinical reasoning in the clinical setting and describe and apply four domains of learning theory to the development of the learner’s clinical reasoning abilities in clinical education. Participants will discuss a clinical reasoning blueprint as a guide to teaching, learning, and assessment of clinical reasoning as it applies to clinical education, and identify teaching, learning, and assessment strategies from the clinical reasoning blueprint for learners at the beginner, intermediate, and competent performance levels. Additionally, participants will apply teaching, learning, and assessment strategies form the clinical reasoning blueprint to clinical instruction given student cases.
