Case Study

A unique feature of the HU-CCCoP Program is the inclusion of case-based studies in every webinar to enhance the learning experience of clinicians.  We have designed each case study to incorporate the social, cultural and clinical realities that are relevant to the Caribbean context.

Case studies actively engage webinar participants in problem solving and clinical decision making; and help them to apply the knowledge gained through discussion in their own clinical practice.

Access case studies here.
