Abstract

Date Presented 04/05/19

This quantitative study examined clinical reasoning development achieved through case-based learning during one year of an entry-level OT curriculum. Self-Assessment of Clinical Reflection and Reasoning identified statistically significant changes in clinical reasoning skills in total score and 10 individual items based on this instructional method. Results were supported by student feedback regarding the benefits of case formats that promoted reasoning and enriched the learning experience.
