Case-based online learning for medical undergraduates

  • Elizabeth H. Hare (a1), Phillip Evans (a2), Claire E. McIntosh (a3) and Lindsay D. G. Thomson (a4)
Extract

Online learning is a tool for teaching and assessing students but to date it has been under-utilised in psychiatry. This article outlines the evidence base for such approaches and gives an illustrative account of developing modules for medical undergraduates on the topic of alcohol use and misuse. This may act as a guideline for the development of other psychiatric teaching modules.
