Securing an accurate diagnosis and providing appropriate treatment of patients are essential elements of good clinical practice. In addition, sharing educational observations with colleagues improves patient care. Both clinicians and patients benefit from this knowledge if made available to them. Most of the medical journals are reluctant to publish case reports because of the fear that doing so will unfavourably affect the impact factor of the journal. It is therefore difficult to have good educational case reports published.
WASOG offers a platform to share your cases. Also, you can add comments to the published cases, for example when you have a similar case.
Our patient cases
We are currently re-programming our patient cases using the innovative and interactive patient case creator tool ePatCare®. This means that in the future, you will be able to use the cases online and offline on a variety of devices.
