This paper offers a critical reflection about how undertaking an MSc Advanced Clinical Practice (ACP) programme, led to a greater understanding about how cognitive processes impact on making complex clinical judgements and decisions. Insights are offered about how using this understanding can ensure safe clinical decisions are made, especially if the clinician is stuck in the corridor of clinical uncertainty. Driscoll’s (2007) ‘what’, ‘so what’, ‘now what’ model is used to facilitate this reflection. To maintain confidentially, all names have been changed when discussing the case study.
