Case reviews

This section of the impact toolkit provides suggestions for case reviews in the following musculoskeletal topic areas:

Recording what happens in a consultation (or case study) demonstrates that an individual:

  • uses best practice
  • deals with problems appropriately
  • responds to emergencies
  • is keeping up to date with (and using) the latest guidance.

It also helps the individual provoke thought, reflection and action which may impact on future behaviour and improve clinical practice. Examples of this kind of activity might include reviewing an unusual presentation, a rare condition, a referral on instinct that turns out to be significant, or a wrong word that changed the consultation.

This learning by experience often goes unrecognised. However, by demonstrating the impact of this learning on patient care, it can be converted into CPD credits.
