Medical symposium highlights importance of case reports -- patient stories in modern medicine
Date:3/19/2009

The event, 'Celebrating case reports, the stories in health care', will be held at the Royal College of Physicians in London on 15 May this year, and will bring together leading doctors from many medical specialties. The meeting will be chaired by the Editors of Cases Network's journals Richard Smith (the former editor of the BMJ) and Professor Michael Kidd (Flinders University, Australia).

Richard Smith said of Cases Network's goal, "Case reports are at the heart of medicine. They are how all doctors learn, and every patient, no matter how "ordinary" his or her problem, has something to teach us. We want to revitalise the excitement of case reports and encourage all doctors to write and read case reports. It's one way to recover some of the lost humanity of medicine."

Sir David Weatherall, Emeritus Regius Professor of Medicine at the University of Oxford, will provide the meeting's keynote speech. Other speakers' topics will include the role of case reports in sharing knowledge on drug side effects (from Professor Jeffrey Aronson, Oxford), the relevance of case reports to GPs (Geoff Wong, UCL) and the benefit of case reports in the developing world (Professor Monappa Hegde, Manipal, India). Sir Iain Chalmers, one of the founders of the Cochrane Collaboration and a leading UK voice for evidence-based medicine will provide alternative insight into the risks as well as the benefits of case reports. The full programme is below.

With such increased access to case report data and improved technologies for categorising it, the value of case reports in medical research and education is expected to reach new levels. This symposium hosted by Cases Network, the world-leading resource for the publication and discussion of medical case reports, therefore comes at a crucial time.
