What Are Case Studies?

Case studies are a record of clinical practice in relation to a particular patient.   

Why Case Studies?

  1. Clinicians or researchers may use case studies to demonstrate both classical and unusual presentations.
  2. A collection of case studies can provide an invaluable record of the clinical practices of a profession.
  3. They can be used in teaching scenarios such as for discussions in the classroom.
  4. Learners may be tasked with producing a case study to demonstrate learning.

Case Studies in Physiopedia

Case studies may be published in Physiopedia to contribute to the knowledge base of the profession.  To be accepted for publication in Physiopedia case studies must:

  1. Only use skills that are within the scope of practice of the physiotherapy profession.
  2. Be supported by appropriate evidence with good use of references.
  3. Be written in an academic case study format (see the Physiopedia Case Study Template)
