The Role of Abductive Reasoning in Detecting Salience in Complex Scenarios

In the discipline of nursing, hypothesis generation is an integral component of scientific (clinical) reasoning utilized by nurses to make sense of client situations in the practice environment. However, there is much debate on the best way to educate nursing students on how to generate hypotheses that accurately and holistically explain the increasing complexity of client situations. This presentation will discuss the effects of abductive reasoning training on hypothesis generation abilities of first- and second-year nursing students. It will outline an approach that educators can use to promote complex and integrated thinking among students and assist them in detecting salience when faced with complex problems.
