Abstract

The author presents six strategies that have been used successfully to teach and assess critical-thinking skills in a pharmacology course. Within the context of pharmacology content, the strategies were designed to develop student abilities in making critical distinctions, critical decision making, analysis of assessment findings, and the anticipation of intervention results and possible side effects/consequences.
