ORKAIZAGIRRE GOMARA, Aintzane; AMEZCUA, Manuel; HUERCANOS ESPARZA, Isabel  and  ARROYO RODRIGUEZ, Almudena. Case study, a learning tool of Relationship-Based Care. Index Enferm [online]. 2014, vol.23, n.4, pp.244-249. ISSN 1699-5988.

Relationship-Based Care is considered as an integral process of caring which includes physical, emotional, communicative and spiritual aspects. It is based on the individualization of care and it requires a relationship of trust, security and promoting personal autonomy. We propose the Case study as a method for analyzing different clinical situations through which we can identify strengths and weaknesses of the relationship established by the nurse and raise solutions and strategies to improve it. The Case study is a useful method to analyze different clinical situations, to identify strengths and weaknesses of the Relationship-Based Care established by the nurse and propose solutions and strategies to improve it. This paper expects to show the potentiality of the Case study as a tool to learn and make visible the Relationship-Based Care, so it can be used to communicate experiences obtained in clinical practice as well as a tool in Bachelor and postgraduate training.
