Case Report Workshop

Case Reports in an Evidence-Based World
Advancing Integrative Holistic Medicine

1-day workshop led by David Riley with Gregory Plotnikoff,
editors with Global Advances in Health and Medicine

When you leave this workshop you will have gained experience in writing some of the sections that make up a case report, having learned the basic guidelines for writing a case report with an understanding of an electronic template used for creating them. You will work with peers and journal editors experienced in writing, reviewing and publishing case reports. To prepare for this workshop, think about a case you might want to bring with you. You might list out concerns, clinical findings, diagnoses, interventions, outcomes or follow-ups relevant to the case that can be developed into an easy-to-follow narrative with help from experienced journal editors.
