INTRODUCTIONClinical reasoning is referred to as the clinical judgement by which clinicians effectivelydetermine various signs, understand and examine the medical condition of the patient,implementation of effective medical intervention, process of information, evaluation of outcomesand learning from the entire process effectively (Langridge, Roberts and Pope, 2016). Clinicalreasoning is an effective measure that helps in interacting with patients and determiningoptimum treatment. It helps in examining strategies which are necessary for optimum qualityclinical practice.MAIN BODYPhase 1: Consider the Patient’s SituationThis is the first stage in which a registered nurse examines the case of the patient andidentifies what he is currently suffering form, when, why, how and other preliminary aspects.Phase 2: Collect cues/ InformationThis is the second phase of clinical nursing where the registered nurse is expected tocarefully examine all the facts related to the patient’s case. It involves studying the past medicalhistory of the patient, different treatments that the patient took, what was effective and what wasnot etc. apart from studying past history, the registered nurse is also required to observe thecurrent treatment plan of the patient and record the vital signs of the patient. All the data that iscollected is analysed by the registered nurse based on the learning i.e. the knowledge that the RNhas of pathology, pharmacology, culture etc. and such knowledge is then used to establish cuesand draw information (The Clinical Reasoning Cycle: The 8 Phases and their Significance,2018). This stage of clinical reasoning can be directly linked with the Standard 1 of RegisteredNurse Standards for Practice which stated that an RN should ‘Think Critically and AnalyseNursing Practice’ which instructs the registered nurses to critically analyse all the availableevidence and then use the best evidence available and experience to develop an appropriatenursing practice. Further, they also need to ensure that the decisions taken by them fall within theethical frameworks that have been defined by the higher authorities and ensure that the registerednurses maintain and document all the important decisions, assessments, actions etc. properlyrecording every aspect that is associated with the patient.
