This paper describes a knowledge-based approach to therapy planning based on an epistemological model of therapeutic reasoning. According to this model, therapy planning involves three basic inference types: abduction, deduction and induction. Representing knowledge needed for executing these tasks may require different formalisms: production rules, frames, probabilistic models and mathematical models. We show how a control blackboard architecture allows the exploitation of different knowledge sources adopting those different knowledge representation formalisms.
