How a case of the month is chosen

Cases of the month concentrate on the notion of continuity of care: this is the main focus in 2008. They start with people’s self-care and good health, move to where patient meets nurse or doctor, examine some good hospital practice, and see high-quality rehabilitation and treatment supported by eHealth. Wherever possible, our examples are chosen from recently submitted cases.

In 2007, our cases of the month tended to be linked to the content of important events throughout the year.
