A Challenging Case is presented by the host Burn Center. Content includes 3-4 unique challenges, requiring a multidisciplinary approach of care to address.
During the session, attendees will be divided into groups to consider case challenges and share recommendations by answering a series of questions/issues to pose to them. The presenting Burn Center will then discuss how challenges were ultimately addressed.
The spirit of this session is a light-hearted, entertaining opportunity to debate the pros and cons of a controversial subject. However, it is important to be on the same page as your debate partner.
Each presentation is limited to 10 minutes, with 5 minutes for rebuttal. Presentations should be based on facts or scientific data, but still be humorous. Consider the following recommendations to help construct a successful, lively session:
- Speak with your co-debater prior to the session. Together, decide the format your debate will take. For example, if one person is using PowerPoint, the other person should as well. If one person is going to sing a song, or use a prop, the other person should be made aware.
- Similarly, debaters should decide which type of evidence to present – clinical experiences, scientific literature, or a mixture of both? If one debater uses anecdotal clinical experience and the other uses only scientific evidence, the session may seem imbalanced.
- Use of props, audio-visual media, costumes and/or audience participation prizes is encouraged.
- While “roasting” of your co-debater may be appropriate, check beforehand so that they are on-board with the style you are choosing. This session is not meant to make anyone to feel uncomfortable.
