Critical Thinking skills will enable Health-Care Professionals to assess the arguments of others by equipping them with the skills to assess the truth claims put forward in support of a conclusion, and to assess the structure and consistency of the argument itself. The learner will also discover how to effectively construct arguments to advocate for their own positions. As a result, the learner will hone their ability to critique the claims of others, to understand and articulate their own opinions, and to make the best decision in a given set of circumstances. Topics covered will include epistemology, logic, recognizing arguments, evaluating arguments, and constructing arguments.
