What will you learn?

This four hour workshop is designed to enhance a participant's understanding of their decision making process and that of their trainees and colleagues. The workshop will provide a roadmap, or algorithm, of how the surgeon forms a decision. This algorithm illustrates the attributes of expert clinical decision making and was developed as a means to address poor clinical decision making processes, particularly as a guide for the supervisor dealing with a struggling trainee or as a self improvement exercise.

Key learning outcomes

  •  Outline the range of cognitive processes involved in CDM
  •  Describe and explain the four stages of CDM
  •  Facilitate decision making in the clinical environment and understand the process behind it
  •  Improve the ability to make clinical decisions under stress
  •  Improve the ability to recognise the factors that influence the quality of decision-making

Target group - Fellows, IMGs, Trainees
