About this item

ABC of Clinical Reasoning

Being a good clinician is not just about knowledge -- how doctors and other healthcare professionals think, reason and make decisions is arguably their most critical skill. While medical schools and postgraduate training programmes teach and assess the knowledge and skills required to practise as a doctor, few offer comprehensive training in clinical reasoning or decision-making. This is important because studies suggest that diagnostic error is common and results in significant harm to patients -- and errors in reasoning account for the majority of diagnostic errors

The ABC of Clinical Reasoning covers core elements of the thinking and decision-making associated with clinical practice - from what clinical reasoning is, to what it involves and how to teach It, Informed by the latest advances in cognitive psychology, education and studies of expertise, this ABC covers

From an international team of authors, the ABC of Clinical Reasoning is essential reading for all students, medical professionals and other clinicians involved in diagnosis, in order to improve their decision-making skills and provide better patient care
