What you will learn

  • Course Summary

  • Case reports and case series have a role in the progress of medical science and integrative health and medicine. They support the discovery of new therapeutic interventions and unexpected effects (adverse or beneficial) as well as the study of mechanisms of action, and they play an important role in medical education. Case reports provide early signals of effectiveness, harms and cost, inform clinical practice, provide feedback on clinical practice guidelines, and generate testable hypotheses.
    By the end of this course, learners will be able to:

    • Identify the CARE health research reporting guidelines.
    • Describe how case reports support patients, clinicians, researchers, and policy‐makers.
    • Explain how to create a case report in general and a timeline in particular.
