Navigating the Case
Navigating through PediCases is very easy. You use the pull-down menus and buttons in the top frame which will look like this once you start the case:
The pull-down menu on the left side of the frame is the main menu. Use this pull-down menu to move between major sections of the case.
You should start with the first section and move sequentially through the sections. Instructions for navigating within each section will appear on the first screen of each section. Optional asides cover materials in greater depth and can be reviewed at any time.
You can click on any of these buttons in the top frame at any time:
