Case Analysis and Case Management
Date: Sunday June 8 to Thursday June 12, 2014
Note that the course 'Essentials of Acute and Chronic Prescribing' is a pre-requisite to 'Case Analysis and Case Management' except for students of Dr. Saine or very experienced practitioners.
Case analysis and case management are the best ways to really test one's knowledge of medicine, and homeopathy in particular. When these aspects are better developed, the physician's prescribing skills are greatly improved. With this in mind, the goal of this course is to perfect the physician's prescribing skills in the art of practicing pure homeopathy. This week will vastly hone your skills as you understand better how to take apart a case and understand which symptoms are truly relevant in finding the remedy, as well as to better interpret and manage the patient's response to the remedy.
The first part of this five-day course will focus on emergency and acute cases, while the second part will deal with chronic cases. In each scenario, topics such as what is most peculiar, what is the simillimum, what is the best posology to adopt, how to interpret the patient's response to the remedy and what is the prognosis will be addressed. We will explore these concepts in depth using both live and paper cases.
These courses are offered to physicians and other primary contact health care practitioners and students of these disciplines.

Dean of the Canadian Academy of Homeopathy Dr. André Saine is a graduate of National College of Naturopathic Medicine in Portland, Oregon and has been the Dean of the Canadian Academy of Homeopathy since 1986. He has taught homeopathy extensively in North America and Europe for over 25 years to health care professionals.
"Utilizing clear Hahnemannian principles, Dr Saine portrays his thinking process clearly, allowing generously for questions and clarification by the students along the way. We attendees are the beneficiaries of his high motivation to help us be better prescribers."
- Nick Nossaman M.D, Colorado
"After all these years dominated by a more psychological approach to homeopathy, I rediscovered genuine homeopathy during Dr. Saine's course. It was a relief going back to the source."
- Daniel Kaiser, M.D., Germany
"E. B. Nash wrote: 'One remedy well studied is better than several not half understood.' If you want to have a thorough knowledge of materia medica and learn how to differentiate remedies effectively you should study with Dr. Saine. His method of teaching the materia medica is unique and inspiring."
