How can I use the DID-ACT curriculum
Overall, the DID-ACT clinical reasoning curriculum for students includes 25 learning units for novice, intermediate, and advanced students of health professions.
Why should I use the DID-ACT learning units?
The learning units provide a deep insight into the process of clinical reasoning and related topics such as cognitive errors, interprofessional collaboration, or considering the patient perspective. Clinical reasoning is an essential ability all healthcare professionals need in their daily work. Our experience is that these topics are not explicitly covered in most health profession schools in Europe.
Who can use the learning units?
The DID-ACT curriculum is designed for students of health professions, such as medical or nursing students, but also students of physiotherapy or occupational therapy can use most of the learning units. Learning units on novice level are suitable for preclinical students without prior experiences.
What is the format of the curriculum?
The learning units are designed in a blended learning format, i.e. a combination of self-study online phases and synchronous teaching sessions with a tutor. However, you can also use all learning units in a self-directed way by yourself.
