Creating and Using Clinical Case Studies(11 Matches)
A case study presents realistic clinical situations or patient scenarios that require learners to analyze and problem solve. Case studies can focus on clinical management or can include both clinical and psychosocial issues. As a training strategy, a case study can be used in small homogeneous or in cross-discipline groups. In small groups, a case study discussion allows participants to learn from each other in a comfortable and safe environment. In a large group, a case study discussion requires skilled facilitation to utilize the knowledge and clinical experience of the group.
In using small or large group case study discussion, the trainer/facilitator needs to develop clear learning objectives and identify key points for participants to discuss.
