Applying critical thinking in health care delivery improves patient outcomes

It’s easy to see why critical thinking is highly valued by employers. Health care delivery sites can no longer afford to be mistaken about best thinking.  Error rates are already in question, difficult problems and decisions must be addressed, and poor judgments can lead to irreparable damage and even cost lives.

Healthcare professionals need critical thinking skills to:

  1. accurately diagnosing emergent conditions
  2. determining & evaluating therapeutic actions 
  3. analyzing & managing health risks
  4. hiring & promoting leaders
  5. designing innovative clinical systems
  6. achieving goals of agency initiatives
  7. allocating resources
  8. anticipating & preventing errors
  9. using & managing information systems
  10. understanding treatment implications
  11. developing data driving protocols
  12. anticipating the implications of actions taken
  13. analyzing & resolving personnel issues
  14. explaining policy & protocols
  15. designing & evaluating departmental reports

This list goes on almost indefinitely in high-stakes practice settings which require employees to make critically important and time sensitive judgments.
