Interactive Case Studies in Clinical Rehabilitation - Chris Barr, James McLoughlin & Susan Rampling
Case studies are often presented to students in a manner where they either have no set end point other than the discussion of the case, or where the student must come to a set result to match that of the case being presented. In real life, clinical decision making is not dichotomous, and a chain of decisions each with their own consequences contribute the outcome for the patient. But what if interactive case studies were developed that offered alternative outcomes for various interventions? What if students were able to choose various directions of treatment and receive feedback on their proposed interventional outcomes?
