Case studies


Case studies represent complex situations that a person, a team, or an institution has faced in real life. Once recreated in written form and used in learning contexts, case studies serve the purpose of stimulating discussion aimed at generating alternatives and responses for professional action.

These case studies were developed by COHRED, FIOCRUZ, IESE, IHI, UNAL, UNIGE & UON under coordination of INSP
