Case Report Structure:
Students must report on independent clinical interventions on one client with guidance from a Case Report Supervisor and/or a Clinic Supervisor. This includes doing a literature review on the presenting condition or client goal; creating and implementing a treatment plan in accordance with the literature, the needs of the client, and the students’ expertise; writing up the results; discussing the implications of the outcomes; and offering suggestions for future study. Because a case report is on one client only, the Foundation will not accept a case series on multiple clients. Submissions of this type will not be scored by the reviewers.
