Cna you help me understand the case study??

  1. I was hoping that some of you on here could help me understand the case study. I have read several of them from the text book but I was wandering what objectives or criteria is required. I have to write one.
    I am not sure that I have had the right patient yet either.

    Any help would be appreciated!

    This probably isn't what you want to hear, but ....

    you're probably going to have to talk with your instructor about that. Different instructors want different things, different formats, etc. They emphasize different aspects of the write-up for grading purposes, etc.

    What you might do is to briefly sketch out a case study, based on the ones you have looked at and then ask your instructor to give you a little feedback. You can do it formally, or you can simply show it to him/her and ask, "Is this what you want us to do? or am I approaching it the wrong way?"

    Thanks for the input. My instructor seems to think that we should all understand this already and so, we are writting one case study and then she will hand it back for "revision"....Since I have not written one before I suppose I will be in the revision stage more than once!
    When asked what to expect she just simply said, read the book and some sample case studies.......
    Thank you for responding. Have a nice day!
