Thesis (D.A.T., Movement & Leisure Sciences)--University of Idaho, June 2014 | A dissertation of clinical practice improvement (DoCPI) is a comprehensive document that will signify the evolution of a scholarly practitioner and progress toward advanced practice. The DoCPI will include a Plan of Advanced Practice (PoAP), which is indicative of critical reflection and professional development. The PoAP will detail patient care, teaching, and research philosophies, as well as a measurable plan for attaining advanced practice in chosen areas of focus. The DoCPI will also include a summary and analysis of clinical outcomes and residency findings, illustrating a transformation of clinical practice, development of decision-making, and advancement of clinical skill and aptitude. A literature review of clinical reasoning in the health professions will represent foundational knowledge of a focus area. Finally, research products will provide evidence of development as a scholar.
