[Problem oriented learning (POL) in rehabilitation on the example of a patient with ankylosing spondylitis].
ABSTRACT Through innovative teaching and learning methods relevant topics in rehabilitation can be conveyed effectively. Therefore, in this paper a papercase for problem-oriented learning (POL) is presented concerning rehabilitation in rheumatology, exemplified by a patient with ankylosing spondylitis. This papercase can be applied in the integrated course Rehabilitation, Physical Medicine and Naturopathic Treatment, the curricular part of teaching rehabilitation during the medical training according to the 9 (th) revision of the Federal Medical Licensing Regulations (Approbationsordnung). In addition the teaching material presented can be used in other courses, such as elective courses for non-medical professionals of the interdisciplinary rehabilitation team. First experiences gathered with the papercase in the Health and Nursing Sciences study programme of the Faculty of Medicine of Martin-Luther-University Halle-Wittenberg are reported.
