Q1: In your experience, what role does context play in teaching clinical reasoning? #TeachDx

Q2: Clinical reasoning is taught and assessed as an individual skill. Situativity theory emphasizes that interactions between persons and persons and their environment impact cognition. How should we consider these factors when teaching clinical reasoning? #TeachDx

Q3: How do current assessments fall short of considering context in clinical reasoning, and how might assessments take context into account? #TeachDx

Q4: Teamwork is often hailed a potential strategy to mitigate diagnostic error, yet there are few described methods to teach or assess clinical reasoning in teams. How might we do this? #TeachDx
