Clinical reasoning describes the thinking and decision-making process behind one’s actions. Effective clinical reasoning should result in appropriate decision-making that leads to better clinical outcomes for the patient. The successful transfer of basic sciences – in other words, clinical knowledge – helps students develop clinical reasoning. However there are challenges translating academic theory into practical situations. Clinical educators play an important role in improving the development of clinical reasoning and identifying difficulties. Aim: To explore student and clinical educator perspectives of clinical reasoning in the Physiotherapy Department of the University of the Western Cape.
