Table 3 What this study adds

From: Learning based on patient case reviews: an interview study

What is already known:
Learning is best enhanced through process-oriented learning methods where learning is driven by needs, is situated in real-life contexts, and allows time to reflect on own performances.
What this study adds:
Reviewing patient cases allowed family physicians to reconsider their clinical work procedures, which enabled them to identify needed changes, as well as to transform these into action and do things more effectively.
Suggestions for future research:
Learning based on patient cases represents real life dilemmas and it is inevitably based on the subjective experiences of the participating physicians. Therefore, the future challenge is to develop methods that ensure reliable learning from the experiences of daily practice.
