Aim: In this study, it was aimed to increase the knowledge and awareness of intern physicians with a case-based course module, on postpartum haemorrhage and Emergency Obstetric Care, to teach basic life-saving approaches and thus to contribute on reducing maternal deaths.
Methods: A case-based course module structured in three parts was practised on six different internship groups of 82 students in total who took Family Medicine internship. Written feedback were received from all students at the end of the training module.
Results: 43% (n=35) of the participating students were female while 57% (n=47) were male. It was observed that all the students (n=82, 100%) participating in the case-based course module were highly satisfied. In addition to their positive opinions, twelve students (14.6%) also reported negative opinions. Ten of them (12.1%) stated that the theoretical course was long, two of them (0.02%) reported that they were discouraged by cases and medicolegal evaluation. Students recommended shortening the theoretical part of the course (n=10, 12.1%), increasing such courses related to emergencies (n=73, 89%), including case-based courses in all internships (n=66, 80%), also having simulation of the course (n=18, 22%). All of the students suggested continuing the course in the next years.
Conclusion: It was observed that case-based learning had a very positive effect on student participation, interest and satisfaction. In parallel with these results, the inclusion of case-based courses into the program, especially for important emergencies, and the planning of the simulation training for specific cases will contribute to the process.
