Webinar: Writing a Case Report 1: Where Do You Start?
Jerrilyn Cambron, PhD
A case report is a description of a client seen in clinical practice, which is written in a scientific manner. Case reports may be the only evidence published on massage therapy for a given condition and may be the "springboard" for researchers to develop larger studies. In this introductory webinar, learn how to decide which case might be worth documenting and how to choose the journal to which you will submit your report.
