The goals of this project were to:
1) To use the instrument to assess any changes in clinical reasoning among GP supervisors who attended a workshop on teaching clinical reasoning.
2) To determine the acceptability and value of using the DTI in Australian general practice (which would suggest acceptability for use by registrars).
3) Establish levels and associations of performance on the DTI.
This project included GP Synergy supervisors who attended a workshop on teaching of clinical reasoning.
Prior to each workshop on teaching clinical reasoning in 2017, GP supervisors who were registered to attend were invited to complete the Diagnostic Thinking Inventory (DTI) online.
Approximately four months following each workshop, those supervisors who completed the DTI prior to a workshop were asked to complete a second DTI. Supervisors were encouraged to participate by asking for their feedback on the DTI and by providing individual feedback on their DTI scores as compared to all supervisors who completed the DTI.
Pre- and post-responses were compared for changes over time.
Supervisors were provided with individual reports on their performance on the DTI at each time point.
