We want to expose the analysis of real clinical cases in a different way, enhancing the experience and contribution of every “actor” in a clinical encounter, following the principles of a “Case Analysis” under the concepts of Patient Safety and Diagnostic Improvement.
1)to expose the clinical reasoning involved in a particular diagnostic process.
2) to show the outcome of this reasoning over the patient situation
3) to develop a teaching tool useful in another clinical environment.
The name “Clinical Theater” has been used previously by Borlefts et al. in 2003 in Utrecht, as a tool to teach clinical reasoning, but our strategy is different ,even with a similar name (1).
Real cases and the real decisions will be exposed
