§ a brief description of the problem, the context and the key trade-offs
§ your recommendation
§ how the results of your sensitivity analysis tie into your recommendation (if relevant)
• A thorough description of the analysis of the case (maximum of four pages), including appropriate references to supporting items in the appendix, and

Some guidelines on what a great case report looks like:
A great case report
§ is based on a correct model
§ has a clear exec summary that includes the content described above
§ provides a clear synthesis of the analysis that goes beyond repeated case facts
