Teaching critical thinking and problem-solving in a pharmacy self-care lab: A skills-based approach

A five-phase experiential-based learning cycle with a foundation based on millennial learners' preferences, human patient simulation, and critical thinking skills development was adapted for use in a self-care lab. Skills are reinforced with topics that increase in complexity as the semester progresses. The objective of this study is to describe the implementation process and to measure the success of these curricular changes. Methods The five-phase learning cycle is utilized to introduce SOAP note writing, evidenced-based medicine, drug information skills, new disease states, patient interviewing, and medication therapy management.
