New resource for clinicians: a guide to using and writing case reports from the Journal of Medical Case Reports
The Journal of Medical Case Reports have published a valuable resource for clinicians in the form of special series of editorials, offering a guide to best practice for writing and using case reports.
All the articles will be free to read immediately upon publication and available to researchers, clinicians and policymakers, as the Journal of Medical Case Reports is an open access journal.
Daniel Shanahan, Associate Publisher, Medical Evidence at BioMed Central said: “Cataloguing rare and curious medical case studies, these reports are a vital knowledge sharing tool for clinicians. But too often they are neglected in course material, meaning doctors have little idea of how to write them or use them effectively. This series aims to resolve this problem and offer a valuable new resource for students, junior and indeed senior clinicians.”
The series includes:
• Case reports in medical education: a platform for training medical students, residents, and fellows in scientific writing and critical thinking
• How to apply clinical cases and medical literatures in the framework of a modified “failure modes and effects analysis (FMEA)” as a clinical reasoning tool – an illustration using the human biliary system
• How to apply a case report in clinical practice on the example of the trigemino-cardiac reflex: A way for thinking models?
• How to review a case report
• How to write a neurology case report
• How to write a case report in nephrology
• When to write a neurology case report
Another valuable publication in the journal for reference when writing and using case reports is “A guide to writing case reports for the Journal of Medical Case Reports and BioMed Central Research Notes”, which was published in 2013 and written by Richard Rison.
