Critical thinking is foundational to health care professionals. While different terminology may be used including clinical reasoning, problem solving, critical thinking, this concept can be found in competency frameworks across the health professions. The Cognitive Assessment Redesign (CAR) project at Queen’s seeks to examine critical thinking and the development of critical thinking over time. The Education Rounds will describe core concepts in teaching and evaluating of critical reasoning. The CAR project will be introduced and discussed in relation to its application in a Critical Reasoning course in the Occupational Therapy program.
