Coaching Diagnostic Reasoning Skills to Unlock Secrets of Expert Thinking
Teaching and assessing learners’ diagnostic reasoning skills are critical elements of training future clinicians. Despite the significant prevalence and harmful impact of diagnostic errors on patient outcomes, teaching and assessing diagnostic reasoning remains a mystery due to the inherent complexity and idiosyncratic nature of the process. This workshop uses a standardized train-the-trainer approach to teaching and assessing the diagnostic reasoning process, with didactics and facilitated small-group interactive practice. Participants will leave with new strategies and tools to enhance teaching and assessment of the diagnostic reasoning process towards life-long learning of these skills.
