Tribune News Network Doha Four anaesthesia specialists at Hamad Medical Corporation's (HMC) Women's Wellness and Research Center (WWRC) have contributed to a new international textbook containing case-based discussion
on clinical issues in obstetric anaesthesia.
Appendix 1: Example of a Lesson Plan Session title Case-based discussion
on management of severe and enduring mental illness.
Objective: Determine the effectiveness of case-based discussion
(CbD) in terms of annual professional ophthalmology examination performances (scores) at undergraduate level involving students.
Guest speaker, Dr Ehsan ul Haque from Lahore University of Management Sciences (LUMS) shared his knowledge on how to improve case-based discussion
in classrooms to enrich student's knowledge.
Furthermore, recent work has shown that the combination of several WBA tools, such as the mini-clinical-evaluation exercise, case-based discussion
, objective structured assessments of technical skills and multi-source feedback, in a portfolio, is a feasible and reliable method for high-stakes exams.
PGY trainees who were preassigned to TSGH due to better overall averages in medical school had better scores in case-based discussion
, mini-clinical evaluation exercise, and direct observation of procedural skills than those who were preassigned to the Regional Teaching Hospitals.
Finally, sociocultural theories can be used as a theoretical framework for scaffolding preservice and inservice teachers' multicultural dispositions and skills during case-based discussion
(Brown & Kraehe, 2010; Moje & Wade, 1997).
(CbD) Multi-source feedback (MSF)
present 16 chapters by UK psychiatrists who outline workplace-based assessments required by the current competency-based psychiatry curriculum in the UK and the theory and practice of different assessment methods such as case-based discussion
, long-case evaluation and directly observed practice, exams, and multi-source feedback.
Contributors, all of whom have been closely involved in developing and piloting the Royal College of Psychiatrists' workplace assessment system, explore the theory and practice of assessment methods such as case-based discussion
and long-case and short-case evaluations, and consider patient satisfaction, multi-source feedback, and changes in MRCPsych examinations.
Some of these are: MiniCEX - Clinical Evaluation Exercise; DOPS - Directly Observed Procedural Skills; MSF/TAB - Multi-Source Feedback; CbD - Case-based Discussion
; ACAT - Acute Care Assessment Tool.
