4 BEGIN WITH: Questions:
What do I really know about this nursing care situation?How do I know it?What options are available to me?
5 Critical thinking:“is the intellectually disciplined process of actively and skillfully conceptualizing, Appling, analyzing, synthesizing and / or evaluation information gathering from or generated by, observation, experience, reflection, reasoning or communication as guide to belief and action”.

8 Critical Thinking Use clinical reasoning and clinical decision making
to practice safe and effective nursing careto improve clinical systemsto decrease errors in clinical judgment
9 Critical Thinking Skills
AnalyzingApplying standardsDiscriminatingInformation seekingLogical reasoningPredictingTransforming knowledge
10 Techniques in Critical Thinking
Critical analysisInductive and deductive reasoningMaking valid inferencesDifferentiating facts from opinionsEvaluating the credibility of information sourcesClarifying conceptsRecognizing assumptions
11 Attitudes that Foster Critical Thinking
12 Attitudes that Foster Critical Thinking (cont'd)
13 Critical Thinking and Nursing
Critical thinking underlies each step of the nursing process, problem-solving process, and decision-making process
14 The Nursing ProcessSystematic, rational method of planning and providing individualized careAssessingDiagnosingPlanningImplementingEvaluating
15 Problem-Solving Process
Clarify the nature of a problem and suggests possible solutionsOne situation contributes to the nurse’s body of knowledge for problem solving in similar situationsCommonly used approachesTrial and ErrorIntuition(is the understanding or learning of things without the conscious uses of reasoning (sixth sense).Research process
16 Decision-Making Process
Decision making: is the critical thinking process for choosing the best action to met the desired goalChoosing the best actions to meet a desired goalMake value decisions (keep client information confidential)Time management decisions (take clean linens in at the same time as giving medications)

Scientifc Problem Solving: 7-systematic problem solving method: (Defne problem, data collection, Formulate hypothesis, plan oF action, hypothesis testing, interpretation oF results, conclusion) Intuitive problem solving (Instincts): direct understanding oF situation based on background oF experience, knowledge, and skill that makes expert decision making possible. Example: A recovery room nurse who realizes that a postoperative patient is deteriorating beFore there are measurable signs to suggest there is a problem. Critical Thinking: Logical, Intuitive or Both? Logical thinking may constrain or block ideas, while intuitive thinking is used alone there are increased risk and less benefts. Pair Logic and Intuitive thinking together!!!
