The process usually involves several steps:

  • Identifying a topic, problem or issue
  • Gathering information
  • Developing solutions or furthering understanding of the topic
  • Testing solutions or new ideas based on what learned
  • Post-analysis, or reviewing what solutions worked, or assessing your new knowledge

A key element to Clinical Cases Skill Developmentis the ability to quickly identify cause and effect relationships.Most analytical thinking requires trial and error. Those with strong analytical thinking skills are often capable of quickly analyzing a situation, topic or problem, and often work well in a team setting to accomplish goals.
