Paramedic Program Case Study Report
Case studies are an important technique for sharing best practices with other colleagues. You will write a case study
report on a case that interests you; this can be something you see in your clinical time or it can be something you
research on your own; the preferred would be a case you have seen.

The report is to be a minimum of (10) pages in MLA format, and will be consist of a minimum of 2,500 words. and due
on the date provided by the Program Director.

You will also have to prepare a minimum (10) minute oral presentation (no longer than 15 minutes) on your case study.
You must utilize at least (1) visual aid in your report (Powerpoint, charts, etc.) Be prepared to give your oral
presentation on the date provided by the Program Director.

Content of the Case Study Report
Introduction
Why is this case important? Set the stage for readers by telling them why you wanted to share the case. It might be
because it posed an unusual challenge, because you developed a creative solution, or something else.

Patient background
What is the patient like? Give readers the pertinent medical/surgical history for the patient. For example, does the
patient with a pressure ulcer have a history of pressure ulcers? Does the patient have significant morbidities, such as
heart failure or diabetes? Think about what a clinician would want to know to better care for the patient. Also provide
the patient’s age and gender, and where the patient was when the care took place (for example, hospital, wound care
clinic, home).

Assessment results
What did you find? Think about the pertinent findings you documented when you did your assessment. For example, the
location of a stoma that is infected, or the size of a wound. You don’t have to include vital signs unless they are relevant.
Again, think about what a clinician would want to know. What is the problem(s)? What exactly is the issue? Is it a new
pressure ulcer? Does the patient not know how to care for his ostomy? Does he or she have a chronic venous ulcer?

Actions taken
What interventions did you and the team do? Describe the plan of care that was developed for the patient. Be as
specific as possible. For instance, state the type of dressing you chose for that stage IV ulcer. Interventions should be
based on best practices, so it’s helpful to tell readers the basis for your actions. For example, you likely used the National
Pressure Ulcer Advisory Panel clinical practice guidelines when you chose that dressing, so it would be helpful to
mention that.

Results
What happened after the interventions? Did the patient get better or worse? It’s important to be specific; for example,
give the size of a pressure ulcer that was reduced. How long did it take to get results? Was the patient discharged from a
facility?

Assignment

Lessons learned

What would you have done differently or what worked particularly well? This is an important section. We all know that
sometimes patient outcomes aren’t what we hoped for, so you’ll want to let readers know what you might have done
differently. On the other hand, if all went well, you might want to share the top two or three items that you believe led
to your success. The goal is to give readers ideas that they can apply in their pract
