Walden RR, Jerome RN, Miller RS. Utilizing case reports to build awareness of rare complications in critical care. J Med Libr Assoc 2007 Jan;95(1):3-8.
“As the second installment in the JMLA’s new case study column, this issue’s case considers the role of the librarian in addressing a complex clinical question that requires extracting relevant evidence when the literature is almost exclusively limited to case reports.

There’ll be additional notes and discussion at the column’s blog.
