P-Mentorship, in collaboration with KIF, goes to the Mcedo Beijing High School, Nairobi Kenya

This was our first visit to the Mcedo Beijing High School! One of our P-Mentors, Mr. Oduong, gave a talk presentation on DECISION MAKING in a simplified manner that the students could understand. Mr. Oduong defined decision making as a choice between a number of possible answers to a question and that making a decision can be done in one of these 3 ways:

(1) rote, the decision is made on the basis of a set of rules and no selectivity is required.
(2) intuitive, decisions are made on the basis of cerebrally stored information and reasoning systems which permit a fast response. The increasing complexity of veterinary clinical questions increases the probability of error
(3) decision analysis, a means of solving complicated problems by including all of the factors that could possibly affect the outcome of the analysis in a series of sequential questions. This gives each of the factors an opportunity of affecting the outcome. The chance of error by omission can be eliminated but the process is prolonged.
