This webinar initially focuses on the risks of using pattern recognition during clinical reasoning processes. We discuss how our own inherent biases can create errors in our clinical reasoning and refer to some clinical case examples.
We outline the various types of cognition used in clinical practice and why each of these thinking styles directly influences our clinical outcomes referring to case studies to illustrate these styles. We define the differences between a medical diagnosis and a physiotherapy diagnosis. We also explain why classifying our patients’ presentations is important in the presence of mechanical pain.
Finally, we review the components of the biopsychosocial model and discuss how we can implement it more readily in our daily clinical practice, using a case study example to reinforce this concept.
