    The Symptoms:

    • This is a case report series based on real patients, built around a graphic backbone.
    • Much of the communication is visual. The graphic forms an image of the teaching points.
    • The characters are based on needs and more than one case will unfold with each episode.
    • The teaching points are folded into the graphics, the images, references, reports and the quiz.
    • The episodes allow you, as the narrative progresses, to reflect , consult the references and if you wish to form a self study project.
    • The series is intended to promote reflection and the sharing of ideas in a community linked by the forum. (you need a password for this)
