Case Study Research

Usually based on a real business or social problem, case study analysis requires you to apply your knowledge and experience. Here are some tips and resources to help you navigate the case study analysis assignment.

Finding Health Case Studies

Google Scholar - Use the terms like "case study," "case studies," or "case method." Keep the terms in quotes to force the results to only return that phrase. Combine with terms like "health," "epidemiology," "nutrition," "sport studies," "nursing," etc. See our handout on Using Google Scholar Effectively.
