Perception of health-related case studies in the context of introduction to clinical medicine course: students ’ and teachers’ perspective

AbstractBackgroundIntegrating theoretical and practical knowledge and stimulating students ’ active learning is the most important task of modern and high-quality healthcare education. By analyzing clinical cases, undergraduate medical students are trained to make accurate diagnoses, to choose appropriate therapy based on laboratory results and on adequate diagnostic tests.AimTo examine the effect of clinical cases presentations on short-term memory as well as on the student ’s and teachers’ evaluation of this method of teaching and learning in undergraduate medical studies.MethodsA total of 107 students in term 4 and term 5 enrolled in Trinity Medical Sciences University in St. Vincent and the Grenadines participated in this cross-sectional study. At the end of the semester, the students and the faculty were asked to complete a survey to assess their perception of case presentations (10 items, 4-point Likert-type scale, strongly agree to strongly disagree). The results of pre- and post-presentation quizzes were evaluated using the Wilcoxon signed rank test for paired samples.ResultsTerm 4 and term 5 students significantly improved their achievement after intervention (Wilcoxon testZ = − 11.282,p

CONCLUSION: The small amount of evidence that is currently available suggests that presbycusis is underdiagnosed and under- treated in Germany. Early detection by physicians of all specialties, followed in each case by a specialized differential diagnostic evaluation, is a desirable goal. PMID: 31196393 [PubMed - in process]

CONCLUSION: The causes of visual impairment are manifold. Loss of vision is often the combined effect of multiple pathological factors. The etiology of visual impair- ment is thus a more complex matter than is commonly assumed. PMID: 31196384 [PubMed - in process]
