The activity involves an interactive and cooperative card-sorting exercise that provides an opportunity for participants in a small group to test their knowledge of a group of diagnoses that may have elements of their presentation, diagnosis, and/or treatment that may be closely related or controversial. A good example, illustrated in this activity, is that of cognitive impairment: delirium, depression and dementia.
- Given a series of terms (phrases), the student will distinguish between delirium, dementia, and depression by placing the appropriate cards into their designated category.
- The student will sort a series of terms (phrases) into the appropriate categories.
- The student will explain their rationale for placing their cards into the specific categories.
