Author: Gary Thomas
This sharp, stimulating title provides a structure for thinking about, analysing and designing case study. It explores the historical, theoretical and practical bones of modern case study research, offering to social scientists a framework for understanding and working with this form of inquiry. Using detailed analysis of examples taken from across the social sciences Thomas and Myers set out, and then work through, an intricate typology of case study design to answer questions such as: How is a case study constructed? What are the required, inherent components of case study? Can a coherent structure be applied to this form of inquiry? The book grounds complex theoretical insights in real world research and includes an extended example that has been annotated line by line to take the reader through each step of understanding and conducting research using case study.
Lachman's Case Studies in Anatomy is a thoroughly revised edition of a popular collection of 50 anatomical cases, covering all major regions of the body.
Author: David L. Seiden
Publisher: Oxford University Press
The fifth edition of this popular collection of fifty-one anatomical case studies, now co-authored by an anatomist and general surgeon, covers all the major regions of the body: head and neck, thorax, abdomen, pelvis and perineum, and limbs. Each case study includes the patient's history, physical exam results, diagnosis, therapy, and a discussion of the findings from the anatomical viewpoint. The discussion becomes the heart of each case by skillfully evolving the logic required to make a diagnosis and prescribe therapy. The cases are ably designed to encourage critical thinking and problem solving. The clarity of Lachman's well-known writing style has been preserved throughout the book. Nineteen new cases including three covering "developmental embryology" have been added to the text and all other chapters have been updated to reflect the newest diagnostic procedures and current therapies. Twenty-five new radiographic figures, including MRI studies, have been added. This edition also offers review questions and answers at end of each section. Lachman's Case Studies in Anatomy, 5th edition succeeds in bridging the gap between theoretical anatomy and its application at the bedside, offering a superb demonstration of anatomical reasoning in clinical settings.

Practice nurses and nurse practitioners working alongside general practitioners are required to see and treat patients with a variety of minor and complex conditions. They therefore need skills in history-taking, physical assessment, diagnosing, prescribing and managing long-term conditions. It is assumed that nurses who read this book will have experience in managing the care of babies, children, well young people, people for whom English is not their first language, people with mental health problems and older people with multiple health problems. These case studies are loosely based on interactions that the author has had with patients in Primary Care.

This important and original book places the case study in international business research in its historical context, critically evaluates current case study practices in the field and proposes a more pluralistic future for case research within international business and international management research. While the case study is the most popular qualitative research strategy in the field, only a narrow selection of possible approaches is currently used. IB and IM researchers typically rely on a case study approach that could be characterized as 'qualitative positivism'. The editors and contributors look beyond this disciplinary convention and encourage greater pluralism in IB and IM case research. Their key argument is that increased awareness of prevailing disciplinary conventions - and their limitations - increases the potential for methodological innovation and versatility in case research. The contributions provide critical, novel and innovative perspectives on the case study in IB and IM research. The book offers inspiration to case authors and an authoritative methodological reference for those publishing and reviewing case research. It will also be highly regarded by postgraduate and doctoral students in IB and IM as well as both qualitative and quantitative researchers in the field.

In this lucid, accessible and often witty new text, Gary Thomas introduces students and researchers to the basics of case study research. Using a wide range of real-life examples, this book sets out for those new to the method how best to design and carry out case studies in the social sciences and humanities How to do your case study: a guide for students and researchers deals with the core issues and methods that anyone new to case study will need to understand: - What is a case study? - When and why should case study methods be used? - How are case studies designed? - What methods can be used? - How do we analyse and make sense of our data? - How do we write up and write about our case? How to do your Case Study will be essential reading for any student or researcher in the Social Sciences, Health Sciences, in Business Studies, in Education and the Humanities.

In this unique book, Dr. Bertorini guides you through more than 100 cases that demonstrate the diagnosis and management of a wide range of common and rare neuromuscular disorders. No other reference boasts such a large array of clinical studies devoted to all areas of this broad topic! Each case study reviews the etiologies, pathogenesis, differential diagnosis, and management of a particular disorder, helping you not only recognize its presentation, but also determine a diagnosis and the best treatment plans for your patients. You’ll also find expert guidance on the basic mechanisms of neuromuscular disorders, clinical examination, and diagnostic tests—including EMG, muscle biopsy, genetic testing, and more. More than 100 detailed case studies explore both common and rare neuromuscular disorders and the treatment protocols for each, equipping you with the knowledge you need to confidently manage any challenge. Each case includes a summary of important points or highlights of the study. Case studies are arranged either by complaint or by diagnosis so that you can successfully manage your patients with or without an initial diagnosis. Comprehensive coverage of EMGs and nerve conduction studies and other diagnostic tests, including muscle and nerve biopsies and genetic testing, helps you accurately diagnose nerve, muscle, and neuromuscular transmission disorders. Detailed discussions of treatment plans and commonly used drugs enhance your management of autoimmune disorders, painful neuropathy, dysautonomia, and other neuromuscular disorders. A reader-friendly format takes you step by step through the diagnosis and treatment of neuromuscular disorders, from the basic anatomy and physiology of the nerve and muscle through to clinical evaluation, diagnostic testing, and therapy. More than 350 high-quality illustrations, including full-color patient photographs, biopsies, and EMG tracings, make complex concepts easier to understand and apply.
