I had to write a case study for my last class - I wrote about a patient with idopathic post-exercise tachycardia associated with syncope. This morning I was doing paperwork in the office and my supervising doc saw the paper and read it....<br><br>
she called the research department and recommended that they consider it for publication! <img alt="" class="inlineimg" src="http://www.mothering.com/discussions/images/smilies/jaw.gif" style="border:0px solid;" title="dropjaw"><br><br>
I'm just floored - yes, it was a really interesting case. Yes, case studies are of limited value. BUT, they can provide a starting point for true research to go from.<br><br>
The thing is that I didn't feel like I did a great job on it - just did what I needed to do, made some minor corrections - definitely NOT up to my usual standards. <img alt="" class="inlineimg" src="http://www.mothering.com/discussions/images/smilies/lol.gif" style="border:0px solid;" title="lol"><img alt="" class="inlineimg" src="/img/vbsmilies/smilies/dizzy.gif" style="border:0px solid;" title="Dizzy">:

Wow! Congratulations!<br><br>
Before you publish, check the school's regulations about human subjects - you may well need to get consent before you can publish! (I'm hampered by serving on my university's IRB).

Thank you for the reminder. <img alt="" class="inlineimg" src="http://www.mothering.com/discussions/images/smilies/winky.gif" style="border:0px solid;" title="Wink"> That is actually part of the reason we are involving the reseach department. <img alt="" class="inlineimg" src="http://www.mothering.com/discussions/images/smilies/smile.gif" style="border:0px solid;" title="smile"> I'm in regular contact with the study subject and she has given both writen and verbal consent. <img alt="" class="inlineimg" src="http://www.mothering.com/discussions/images/smilies/thumb.gif" style="border:0px solid;" title="thumbs up">

That is fantastic!!!! Congrats! And don't dismiss the value of a case study! (from one who is writing a dissertation on one.) <img alt="" class="inlineimg" src="http://www.mothering.com/discussions/images/smilies/smile.gif" style="border:0px solid;" title="smile">
