A Clinical Reasoning Blueprint: Linking Learning Theories to Curricular Innovations

Clinical reasoning is an essential yet complex teaching and learning concept in physical therapist education. Evidence supports the need to consistently define, teach, and assess clinical reasoning while integrating the learning sciences more intentionally and explicitly into the academic curriculum. Thus, developing a comprehensive and longitudinal approach for the explicit development of a learnerÕs clinical reasoning abilities from the beginning of the curriculum through residency education and beyond, that is connected to the learning sciences, is essential. In this session, speakers will present an evidence-based clinical reasoning learner blueprint developed as a curricular guide for identifying learning performance expectations across the categories of beginner, intermediate, competent, and proficient. Three innovative curricular cases highlighting specific examples of applying the learner blueprint across entry-level and residency education will be shared. An expert in clinical reasoning and education research will critique the blueprint and cases and then engage attendees in an active learning experience to identify components that can be applied to their own curricula.
