Several publications indicate that critical thinking is an integral part of the delivery of health care. This would suggest that fostering the development of critical thinking skills is a vital component of preparing RTs for the health care of today and the future. However, we know very little about critical thinking in the context of respiratory care as it’s not an area that has been thoroughly studied. This presentation will discuss the core components of fostering critical thinking skills in formal education and at the bedside from one of the few recognized experts in the field.
