This four hour workshop is designed to enhance a participant's understanding of their decision making process and that of their trainees and colleagues. The workshop will provide a roadmap, or algorithm, of how the surgeon forms a decision. This algorithm illustrates the attributes of expert clinical decision making and was developed as a means to address poor clinical decision making processes, particularly as a guide for the supervisor dealing with a struggling trainee or as a self improvement exercise.

• Describe and explain the four stages of CDM
• Facilitate decision making in the clinical environment and understand the process behind it
