37 Case management Since about 20 years, Ive been studying homeopathy. Step by step, reading all those inspiring books, homeopathy became clear to me; however, some aspects of it, did not… Until I read the most wonderful books of Luc De Schepper: Hahnemann revisited and Achieving and maintaining the similimum. All of a sudden, the hidden aspects showed themselves to me! Dr Luc seems to have the marvelous capacity to translate the texts of Hahnemann into clear, pure, understandable language… Especially his strategic case management resulted in more successful homeopathic prescribing; indeed, the second prescription is often the most difficult one. It is for this reason I made this interactive PowerPoint show. In a few mouse-clicks, you will be able to find out how to act, using your patients information, during his second visit. The more successful our prescribing becomes, the more motivated we – as homeopaths – become. And this is in the interest of our patients, as well as in the interest of homeopathy itself. Using homeopathy in a correct way, resulting in successful prescribing is in fact a tribute to Samuel Hahnemann; its the proof that his Similia Similibus Curantur is still living!
