Quality and Safety Outcomes in Health Care
Summary of Findings
A brief evaluation was undertaken to find some of the most effective teaching strategies that help foster critical thinking in undergraduate nursing students. According to earlier studies, critical thinking enhances the quality and safety of healthcare outcomes. Numerous systematic evaluations talk about how to teach nursing students to think critically. The current fast assessment was built on the selected systematic reviews and a meta-analysis that includes essential information about the subject. In the discussion of the results, the interventions are divided into four categories: problem-based and evidence-based procedures, instructional strategies, and student-centered strategies.
The evaluated systematic reviews and the meta-analysis examined how well technology-based approaches to CT skill acquisition work. The interactive videodisc system and the interactive videodisc system were the only two interventions that successfully improved critical thinking. The 2016 evaluation by Carter, Creedy, and Sidebotham determined that interactive videodisc systems successfully promote the growth of CT skills in nursing education. Using the CCTDI method, the interactive videodisc system’s effectiveness was assessed (Carter, Creedy & Sidebotham, 2016). There may have been other technological solutions that worked better.
Techniques that are both problem- and evidence-based
The main subjects of the systematic reviews and meta-analyses were the problem and evidence-based solutions that promote critical thinking in nursing students. The PBL method is useful in the classroom when used alone (Oliveira, D., Carbogim, Rodrigues, & Püschel, 2016; Carter, Creedy, & Sidebotham, 2016; Carvalho et al., 2017). However, it was combined with CM because the impact on CT was more important (Carter, Creedy & Sidebotham, 2016; Carvalho et al., 2017). In order to enhance CT skills, the method could also be employed with online education (Oliveira, Dáz, Carbogim, Rodrigues & Püschel, 2016). Researchers Carter, Creedy, and Sidebotham (2016) found that enrolling in evidence-based courses helped nursing students develop their critical thinking abilities.
