Aims

Target Audience

The course is aimed at educators in primary care who are involved in teaching family medicine at the undergraduate and post-graduate levels. We expect that teachers at the beginning of their educational careers and experienced teachers will find the course to be challenging and applicable.

Rationale

Family doctors make diagnoses and manage problems in unique ways, however we rarely discuss openly how we think. Gabbay and Lemay have described ‘mindlines’ as the internal processes doctors use to reach their decisions. In this course, we will discuss the ways that family doctors make diagnoses and choose treatments based on the best evidence from clinical guidelines, combined with internal, personal knowledge in the form of mindlines. We will show how this process can be shared with colleagues, students, and patients to improve medical education and medical care.

Aims

At the end of this course the learner will be able to design a teaching module on the use of mindlines and guidelines in family medicine.

Specific objectives of the course

At the end of the course the learner will:

1

Be able to define mindlines and guidelines in medical practice.

2

Be able to demonstrate their own use of mindlines and guideline is diagnosis and treatment.

3

Be able to communicate about the use of mindlines and guidelines to students, trainees, colleagues, and patients.
