Case studies are much more valuable than many give credit for.
It is this type of study that can often lead to sweeping changes in how further research is conducted, often create paradigm shifts in their own right.
After all, there was only one Patient H.M.
One thing that I wish I saw more in case studies was the clinician’s thought process. Why did they elect to do this treatment over that, what were they thinking when they saw this? How do they tick?
I was fortunate enough to have an online client of mine suggest to that I make her a case study, and it was a very rewarding experience on both fronts.
My hope is that you can see how a clinician thinks first-hand, and see the challenges a clinician faces…
When you can’t work with your hands.
