This paper builds on clinical decision making for therapeutics that was introduced in PHCY511 and extends the framework for dealing with uncertainty in more advanced care settings. Core clinical topics are then introduced at a more advanced level to provide a framework for applying patient-centred therapeutic decision making.

The paper consists of two structured modules:
Module 1. Students will examine the processes of clinical decision-making in depth using examples from their practice to highlight the processes. The decision-making process will then be focused towards patient-centred decisions in respect to the patient’s personal, pharmaceutical and health needs. Processes for dealing with uncertainty will be developed and embedded. Finally, this module will incorporate communication and negotiation of care plans to both the patient and other health providers.
Module 2. Students will focus on clinical decision-making skills and their application to cardiovascular, respiratory and endocrine disorders. This will include formal teaching on each of these therapeutic areas. Students will contribute experiences from their work place to provide an opportunity to embed both the skills and knowledge.
