The 2023 IAMSE meeting in Cancun, Mexico will offer many opportunities for faculty development and networking to bring health sciences and health education across the continuum together. This year’s main topic is Teaching & Learning in Health Sciences: Linking Current Theory to Practice. The third of our four plenary speakers is Michelle Daniel from University of California, San Diego School of Medicine in the United States. She will present Expanding Boundaries: Using a Transtheoretical Model of Clinical Reasoning and Diagnostic Error to Improve Teaching and Assessment on Monday, June 12, 2023.
Expanding Boundaries: Using a Transtheoretical
Model of Clinical Reasoning and Diagnostic Error
to Improve Teaching and Assessment
Presented by: Michelle Daniel
Date and Time: Monday, June 12, 2023 8:45-9:45 AM EST (UTC -5)
Multiple theories of cognition inform our understanding of clinical reasoning and diagnostic error. These theories range from “micro” theories, that focus on what goes on “in the head” to “macro” theories that extend the boundaries of clinical reasoning to what goes on “out in the world.” The most well-known “micro” theory is Dual Processing Theory. Embodied cognition, ecological psychology, situated cognition and distributed cognition are a family of social cognitive theories that offer progressively more “macro” accounts of reasoning and error. Collectively, they help us understand the mind as embodied (i.e., interacting with the body), embedded (i.e. interacting with the environment) and extended (i.e., interacting with other people and artifacts in larger systems) which can have profound impacts on how we think about teaching and assessment.
