Summary

This innovative text helps readers relearn clinical reasoning skills to become more outcome focused. As the health care industry shifts toward an outcome orientation, these new reasoning skills take on more importance. This book introduces the OPT (outcome, present state, test) model of clinical reasoning. This model, an alternative to the nursing process, uses the client story as the foundation for developing reasoning skills that are outcome focused.
