Tips developing your Case Report
Use only one treatment modality and use reliable measures to assess progress.
Synthesize data and present it only once - You don't need to present all the data you collect - Be clear and concise.
Don't use "I" or "we" - use "the author(s)".
Pre and Post Measurements
It is important to have a form of pre- and post-measurements to quantify the changes that occurred due to the treatment. Here are some ideas for simple yet meaningful measurements:
McGill Pain Rating Index (PRI) – A questionnaire is used to evaluate a person's pain level and pain triggers. It was developed by Dr. Melzack at McGill University in Montreal, Canada.
Visual Analog Scales - Numeric Pain Rating Scale (NRS) – This is perhaps one of the most commonly used pain scales in healthcare. The client rates their pain level on a scale from 0 to 10 - 0 indicates the absence of pain, while 10 represents the most intense pain possible.
The Beck Depression Inventory (BDI), created by Dr. Aaron T. Beck, is a 21-question multiple-choice self-report inventory, one of the most widely used instruments for measuring the severity of depression. The questionnaire is designed for individuals aged 13 and over.
