Um das Thema zu erfassen sind Kenntnisse der Prozess-Schritte notwendig, die im Anschluss vorgestellt werden. Im vierten Teil werden die Ebenen erläutert, in denen der CR-Prozess das Pflegesetting determiniert. Mit dem Situated Clinical Decision-Making Framework wird ein Modell vorgestellt, welches eingesetzt werden kann um den Entscheidungsprozess voranzubringen. Der Teil 6 geht vorwiegend auf die geläufigsten Formen ein, beschreibt aber auch CR-Formen, die weniger häufig in der Literatur zu finden sind. Im Anschluss werden Richtungen des CR und übergreifenden Formen vorgestellt sowie auf temporäre Ebenen eingegangen. Die sechs Elemente des Clinical Reasoning finden ihre Beschreibung im 10. Kapitel, dem sich förderliche Instrumente anschließen. Der CR-Prozess mündet schließlich in einen Entscheidungsprozess, der im vorletzten Gliederungspunkt behandelt wird.

Fachbuch aus dem Jahr 2014 im Fachbereich Pflegewissenschaften, Note: 1,0, Donau-Universität Krems - Universität für Weiterbildung, Sprache: Deutsch, Abstract: Clinical Reasoning wird gemeinhin als ein rationaler Prozess angesehen, der analytisches Denken voraussetzt und beinhaltet. Neuerdings werden zunehmend Beweise dafür veröffentlicht, dass Clinical Reasoning eher als von zwei Prozessen gesteuert anzusehen ist: Einem rational-deliberaten als auch einem intuitiven Denken. In dieser Publikation werden zunächst die Grundzüge des rationalen Clinical Reasoning vorgestellt und beschrieben. Anschließend wird auf die Parallelen, aber auch die Unterschiede zum Intuitive Clinical Reasoning eingegangen. Der zweite Teil beinhaltet eine empirische Studie, die die Präferenz für Intuition und deren Messung an Pflegefachkräften in drei Alten- und Pflegeheimen untersuchte. Angelehnt an den Erkenntnissen von Patricia Benner wurden Beweise gesucht, ob Pflegefachkräfte eher Intuition nutzen als ihre weniger erfahrenen Kolleginnen und Kollegen. Die Studienergebnisse belegen eine generelle starke Nutzung der Intuition im Entscheidungsverhalten, eine Korrelation mit der vorhandenen Expertise konnte allerdings aufgrund eines Plafond-Effektes nicht dargestellt werden.

Studienarbeit aus dem Jahr 2014 im Fachbereich Pflegewissenschaften, , Sprache: Deutsch, Abstract: Der hauptsächlich in Medizin und nichtärztlichen Heil- und Hilfsberufen verwendete Begriff „Clinical Reasoning“ wird im US-amerikanischen Raum auch im Pflegebereich verwendet. Clinical Reasoning meint einen Denk-, Handlungs- und Entscheidungsprozess, der der Pflegekraft alleine, in Auseinandersetzung mit Berufskollegen oder im interdisziplinären Team dazu dient, das Vorgehen zur Planung und Durchführung der Pflege möglichst optimal gestalten zu können. Mit Professionalisierung der Pflege findet Clinical Reasoning zunehmend Aufnahme in Gesundheits- und Pflegewissenschaften. Der Einführungsvortrag gibt einen ersten Ein- und Überblick zur Thematik „Clinical Reasoning“.
