    Abstract

    Health care practitioners often have to make clinical decisions in complex and difficult circumstances. Good clinical reasoning can help reduce some of the pressures and demands that a busy clinician faces and the editors of this book help facilitate this process. This third edition includes expansion of significant new trends in clinical decision making practice and research, a new focus on clinical reasoning communication, collaboration and negotiation and the patient and client's role in making decisions, an extension of clinical reasoning education approaches, a review of research methods, a deeper exploration of the nature of practice knowledge and the sociocultural, historical framework of knowledge construction, and further examination of experience and professional artistry in clinical reasoning.
