Assessment Requirements You should produce a case study presentation on the topic outlined below. In this piece of coursework, you are expected to find and present a medical case report relating to the prescribed topic. A medical case report gives a detailed description of the symptoms, diagnosis, treatment, and outcome relating to a disease exhibited by an individual patient. The presentation will be in the form of a pre-recorded PowerPoint presentation. The details are given below. Finding a case report: You should find a case report relevant to the topic below that has been published within the last 10 years or so. Several journals publish medical case reports. A comprehensive list of journals publishing case reports is given in Rison et al ., Journal of Medical Case Reports (2017) 11:198 . However, not all the journals in the list are considered reputable. Reputable journals that publish case reports on infectious diseases include BMJ Case Reports , Case Reports in Infectious Diseases , JMM Case Reports , and The Journal of Medical Case Reports . The case study presentation should include the following: · A short overview of the pathogen in question : you should briefly describe the pathogen including its main characteristics, and its medical relevance along with the disease(s) it causes. · Presentation of the case report : give a summary of the medical case report you have chosen to present, including all the relevant information about the patient, symptoms, diagnosis and treatment. However, you should not try to include all the details given in the case report; only include those details that are necessary for the audience to understand the case and that you consider in the critical evaluation. · A critical evaluation of the case report : you should shortly evaluate the procedures described in the report by considering questions such as: was the diagnosis done according to accepted and up-to-date methods? Which other pathogens or conditions might cause similar symptoms and were these excluded correctly? Was the treatment in line with current recommendations? Might there have been other valid options for treatment? Was the follow-up carried out properly? What could have been done to improve the diagnosis/treatment/outcome? Your submission to NOW should include: A PowerPoint presentation of at most 15 slides (not including the title slide) . The presentation should be prepared as if for a professional presentation, e.g. at a conference. You are free to choose a title. A suggested breakdown for the length is · Overview slide · Introduction of pathogen (2-3 slides) · Description of case report (4-6 slides) · Critical evaluation (2-4 slides) · Summary/concusions slide A good presentation will include an outline and a summary or conclusions slide. The presentation must not exceed 15 slides (excluding the title slide); any additional slides will not be considered for marking. There is no lower limit to the presentation, but you may not reach the required depth for the presentation if it is much less than 12 slides. Note that the breakdown above is a suggestion; you are allowed to structure your presentation differently, for example by embedding the critical analysis within the description of the case. The important thing is that all three aspects (pathogen introduction, case report and evaluation) are clearly covered in the presentation. The slides should be formatted in an attractive way without excessive text on the slides. Generally, a few key words given as bullet points are preferable to long stretches of continuous text. Fonts should be large enough for easy comprehension even from a distance. The use of images is encouraged; the sources of any images should be included on the slides. Use high-quality images with sufficient resolution, so the images do not appear pixelated or blurry in the final presentation. Most scientific journals allow downloading high-resolution images that can be used in presentations if the source publication is cited. You can also make your own figures using e.g. PowerPoint’s own functionalities. A particularly useful programme is Biorender ( www.biorender.com ), which allows making professional-looking figures quickly and easily. This programme is free to use for educational purposes. A recorded narration of up to 15 minutes : You should also include a recording of a narration for the presentation. Instructions on how to do this in PowerPoint can be found here . The narration should be what you would speak during the presentation (this is instead of a live presentation). The narration should be clear, engaging, well-structured and be supported by the slides. It also needs to be of technically good quality, so the audio is loud enough and there are no background distractions. You can refer to figures and other material shown on the slides but try to avoid “reading the slides”. The narration should provide additional material to what is on the slides, filling in details and giving a rounded, interesting account of the case for the audience. Remember to explain any specialist terms that the audience (think of your peers) might not be familiar with and avoid using jargon. The narration should make the presentation as close to a ‘live’ presentation as possible, including the presenter introducing themselves and thanking the audience for their attention at the end. The narration should be no longer than 15 minutes ; anything going over 15 minutes will not be considered in the marking. If either the number of slides or the narration exceeds the prescribed limit, marking will be stopped for the other element as well at that point. Note that the presentation is limited, so you probably cannot include all the information you have found. You will therefore have to select which information to present to give a clear, balanced, engaging and up-to-date presentation. Further guidelines for preparing your presentation can be found in NOW student help, Presentation skills . References : The material presented should be based on the case study report and recent research articles and public body guidelines (e.g. Public Health England, the World Health Organization, The Centers for Disease Control and Prevention). Avoid using online sources such as Wikipedia as your only references. Wikipedia is a good starting point to get an overview of a subject, but it should not be referenced in a scientific context as the content can be edited in a non-controlled way. Rather, cite peer-reviewed research papers, review articles or reputable websites (such as those provided by the bodies listed above) as your main sources. You should add any references (in Harvard style) to the relevant slides , for example as footnotes. References should not be given as a final reference list or as separate notes not visible in the presentation. For referencing help, see https://www.ntu.ac.uk/m/library/referencing-made- easy .
