Project description:

Clinical decision-making skills (clinical reasoning) is a complex set of skills and abilities needed in clinical practice to make a diagnosis and develop a treatment plan for and with patients. Despite the importance of clinical reasoning for the workplace of healthcare professionals and patient safety there is still a lack of structured and explicit teaching, learning, and assessment of clinical reasoning in healthcare education.

The aim of the EU-funded project DID-ACT is to develop and research a longitudinal and interprofessional curriculum for students and teachers in healthcare professions. Modern teaching and examination formats such as blended learning, virtual patients and e-portfolio activities will be implemented.
