A casebook acts as a storehouse for information about medical conditions you may find on this Resounding Health web site or anywhere else on the web. In either case the abiity to store and organize this information into a casebook is only one click away.
You may have many casebooks, each of which addresses one or more medical conditions conditions. Rather than focus a casebook on medical conditions you may chose to focus the casebook on an individual. The choice is yours. Your Casebooks are private by default - only you can access them, but you may choose to make them public, or share them with a select group.
Casebooks are named, and may have a description and a set of notes describing the content of the Casebook in detail. In addition the casebook may contain:
Below is how a small casebook appears in the browser. We have associated two topics with it and have some external web pages bookmarked.
Casebooks can only be created by registered logged-in users. When you register a private Casebook is created for you - the name of the casebook is your user name (but you can change this, as you can any aspect of a casebook). Your casebooks can be accessesed from the Home > My Home > My Casebooks menu.
From this page you can delete or edit a particular Casebook, and, in the 'My Casebooks' panel there is a sub-menu option to 'Create A New Casebook'. Click on this and you will be prompted for a Casebook name and a short description. On pressing the create button you are led into a series of pages which allow you to edit your newly created Casebook.
A newly created or pre-existing casebook can have any aspect of it changed by its creator in the Casebook editing page. You reach this page automatically after creating a Casebook, or when you click on the edit option against a Casebook listed in the Home > My Home > My Casebooks menu. The editing function is split across a series of tabs which you can enter in any order. When you have made all the changes you desire click the Update button at the top of the panel and all your changes will be saved. The panels are:
A bookmark is a web page that is associated with the casebook. The bookmark may have one or more comments left by users who have also bookmarked the web page. The steps to add bookmarks to a Casebook are simple.
Casebooks can be found in a number of ways. If you just want to see your CAsebooks, and you are logged in, then use the menu Home > My Home > My Casebooks to get to a list of all of your Casebooks, or Home > My Home > My Casebooks > Casebook Name to get to a particular Casebook.
Casebooks may be returned by using Resounding Health's search menu - Find > Casebooks | Medical Terms | Symptoms may all return Casebooks as part of their search results.
The Resounding Health Home Page shows a list of tghe most recently authored casebooks and gives an option to see all the casebooks, as does a link from the Find > Casebooks page.
Since the bulk of a Casebook may be references to other webpages (bookmarks), printing a Casebook is a little more complicated than simply hitting the browser Print button. If you are logged in, however, we have solved the problem.
When you are at the Casebook you want to print and logged in you will see a "Print PDF" option in the CAsebook's menu bar. Clicking this will cause the system to read the Casebook, follow all the bookmarks, assemble all the bookmarked web pages and produce a single document consisting of the Casebook and all its associated web pages.
This can take time so the system does the printing "in the background" and when it is finished it will make the PDF file available to you on the sub menu item "Printed Casebooks" at Home > My Home.
