Keywords: Critical thinking, healthcare

Abstract

Critical thinking is an essential goal of all education, particularly higher education. However it is "a complex and controversial notion that is difficult to define and, consequently, to study" (Abrami et al. 2008). The critical thinking movement that emerged in North America in the 1980s was characterised by debate around how this concept should be defined as well as how it should be taught.
