ACAPT’s Clinical Reasoning Curricula & Assessment Consortium (CRCAC) was busy in 2021:
- The WIGs researchers are those researchers invited for a series of discussions from late 2020 through February 2021 on the Wildly Important Goals (WIGs) in clinical reasoning. These WIGs were constructed in 2017 and were the foundation of the 2020 Clinical Reasoning Symposium II that was canceled due to the pandemic.
With a clear and concentrated investment of the mentors and researchers alike, there were several successful seminars through February 2021 emphasizing building collaborative educational research. Congratulations to all the researchers who are presenting their scholarly work at the Education Leadership Conference 2021!
The WIGs of the CRCAC take a deeper dive into priority research areas for clinical reasoning.
- What is clinical reasoning in physical therapy?
- What should entry-level clinical reasoning look like?
- What is the trajectory of learner development of clinical reasoning abilities?
- What are best practices for teaching and assessment of clinical reasoning?
- What are the roles of clinical reasoning and shared decision making in the context of team-based care?
"Clinical reasoning spans
all areas of practice and education, making it a wonderful vehicle of research
and conversation for breaking down silos."
