The relationship between criticality and creativity is commonly misunderstood. Critical and creative thought are both achievements of thought. Creativity masters a process of making or producing, criticality a process of assessing or judging. The very definition of the word "creative" implies a critical component (e.g., "having or showing imagination and artistic or intellectual inventiveness"). When engaged in high-quality thought, the mind must simultaneously produce and assess, both generate and judge the products it fabricates. In short, sound thinking requires both imagination and intellectual standards. Throughout this guide we elaborate on the essential idea that intellectual discipline and rigor are at home with originality and productivity, and also that these supposed poles of thinking (critical and creative thought) are inseparable aspects of excellence of thought. Whether we are dealing with the most mundane intellectual acts of the mind or those of the most imaginative artist or thinker, the creative and the critical are interwoven. It is the nature of the mind to create thoughts, though the quality of that creation varies enormously from person to person, as well as from thought to thought. Achieving quality requires standards of quality - and hence, criticality. We believe that creative thinking, especially, must be demystified and brought down to earth. For this reason, we deal with it in this guide not only in terms of its highest manifestation (in the work of geniuses), but also in its most humble manifestations (in everyday perception and thought). There are ways to teach simultaneously for both creative and critical thinking. To do so requires that we focus on these terms in practical, everyday contexts, that we keep their central meanings in mind, that we seek insight into how they overlap and interact with one another. When we understand critical and creative thought truly and deeply, we recognize them a

Book Description Foundation for Critical Thinking. Paperback. Condition: New. 58 pages. Dimensions: 7.7in. x 5.0in. x 0.3in.Clinical reasoning can be defined as thinking through the various aspects of patient care to arrive at a reasonable decision regarding the prevention, diagnosis, or treatment of a clinical problem in a specific patient. Patient care includes history taking, conducting a physical exam, ordering laboratory tests and diagnostic procedures, designing safe and effective treatment regimens or preventive strategies, and providing patient education and counseling. Obviously, the clinician should be well grounded in biomedical and clinical sciences and skillful at gathering clinical data from a patient before engaging in the process of clinical reasoning. This guide does not address the knowledge and skills required to competently gather and interpret clinical data. Rather, the guide is intended to help clinicians take the next step, which is determining the best course of action to take based on what is known or what can reasonably be hypothesized from clinical data. So, it isnt enough to have a strong background in the biomedical sciences or to possess excellent clinical knowledge, nor to know how to conduct a history and physical exam on a patient, or even to know how to formulate a differential diagnosis given the signs, symptoms, and test results of a patient. n addition to all of this, there is still a need to think critically about all the important information pertaining to a particular case and to formulate or synthesize a rational plan of action. In short, clinical reasoning requires critical thinking skills, abilities and traits which are often not taught in schools and colleges for the health professions. This guide focuses on a framework for critical thinking relevant to all domains of human thought and is specifically focused on clinical reasoning. The suggestions and conclusions herein are consistent with the suggestions and conclusions found in the works of prominent thinkers in the clinical fields. This item ships from multiple locations. Your book may arrive from Roseburg,OR, La Vergne,TN. Paperback. Seller Inventory # 9780944583425
