The Improving Students’ Patient Care Management Using the Thinker’s Guide to Clinical Reasoning course helps dental and dental hygiene educators work with students to plan and individualize patient care and communicate more effectively with their patients. Patients have different needs yet often students provide the same oral hygiene instructions to every patient. The provided guide encourages students to think through clinical issues regarding diagnosis, prevention, and treatment of clinical problems. This course introduces participants to the Thinker’s Guide to Clinical Reasoning based on the Paul-Elder Critical Thinking Framework. Meaningful case studies provide opportunities for participants to apply the guide’s standards and elements of clinical reasoning to improve students’ management of patient care.
