(you can also access this journal via pubmed or from the reading list).
To complete this assignment you will require the following materials.
1. Read Case-control Study
2. Use the CASP tool to break down the document for your critical review.
3. Hint – We suggest you uptodate your knowledge on the microbiology of the disease.
The document titled Case-control Study provides a glossary and a narrative on preparing and interpreting a general case report. To assist in writing this essay map out your work by deconstructing the case report by preforming a Critical Appraisal using an 11 question proforma or appraisal tool also known as CASP tool.
Do not embed the question itself from the proforma into the essay, only the answer. From a broad reading of other case-control studies you will be able to interpret how the authors approached their work and the generalisability of their approach and conclusions.
