Default Clinical reasoning - improving teaching and practice

Clinical reasoning: A guide to improving teaching and practice

I found this on Facebook posted by Sigurd Mikkelsen, in Norway. Only 3 pages, with a flowchart and Spock-like logic.

Thanks for this Diane. After going through the APTA advanced credentialed clinical instructor program I became aware of the "One-Minute Clinical Instructor" model, which follows some of the same process discussed in the article you linked.

It helped me try to pass on clinical reasoning better with students, but also applying to myself has improved my clinical reasoning and becoming more mindful of my evaluation/examination process.

I would add a sidebar to the algorithm, not just will diagnostic testig confirm you hypothesis but also wil it alter treatment. if not don't do it

"Here is Edward Bear coming downstairs now, bump, bump, bump, on the back of his head behind Christopher Robin. It is, as far as he knows, the only way of coming downstairs, but sometimes he feels that there is another way, if only he could stop bumping for a moment and think of it." A.A. Milne
