Abstract

Students can be taught clinical reasoning actively with the adaptation of the infusion approach for "teaching of" thinking. The authors demonstrate the "teaching of" critical thinking strategies for diagnostic decisions. The instructor uses a thinking map and models the process of diagnosis step by step. Working in small groups, students practice, monitor, and revise their strategies of clinical reasoning.
