Case Reports & Case Series: Strengths, Weaknesses, and “How-To” of this low hanging fruit - Dr. PATTERSON
1: Case reports and case series are foundational to clinical research.
2: Case reports and case series provide the opportunity for clinicians to describe novel clinical management and treatment of patient case(s).
3: Case reports and case series provide clinicians to offer “clinical pearls” to trainees and junior clinicians.
4: Despite inability to perform hypothesis tests, case reports offer the opportunity clinician investigators to develop a command of a clinical condition/disease state and treatment/management protocol.
