Develop the critical thinking and clinical reasoning skills needed to excel in your classes and in the field
Integrated Critical Thinking and Clinical Reasoning in Pharmacy Practice was designed to help you develop the clinical reasoning, critical thinking, and problem-solving skills needed to succeed in patient care courses and to provide excellent patient care in advanced practice experiences and in practice. The book opens with a review of the fundamentals of critical thinking, clinical reasoning, and the Pharmacist's Patient Care Process (PPCP). In subsequent chapters, practicing clinical pharmacists invite you into their practice and then into their minds as they integrate these skills in methodically working through a patient case from their practice.
Inside these pages, you'll be carefully guided through each step of the PPCP and be shown how tools such as concept maps and argument diagrams can help you organize your thinking and support your recommendations. You will also find worksheets to help you plan and reflect on your critical thinking, to apply critical thinking and clinical reasoning in each step of the PPCP, and to self-identify and mitigate potential biases that might impact your reasoning. Though the standards of critical thinking will be applied in this text primarily to patient care, they are universal to thinking well in all pharmacy courses, all of pharmacy practice, all of healthcare, and all of life.
