A clinical reasoning remediation program for healthcare professionals can help ensure quality service and protection of the public. The assumption is that all practicing clinicians use clinical reasoning when providing service, however, a small number of clinicians are in need of help with these skills. This presentation will describe the Clinical Reasoning Remediation Program developed by the College of Audiologists and Speech-Language Pathologists of Ontario (CASLPO). The remediation program has been designed to meet the needs of experienced professionals using adult learning principles, as well as established methodologies to promote critical thinking and problem solving. The remediation program also allows for post-remediation evaluation using CASLPO’s Clinical Reasoning Tool. This presentation will help participants understand the complexities of and specific requirements for effectively helping practicing clinicians improve their clinical reasoning when providing service.
