Curr Pharm Teach Learn. 2021 Aug;13(8):1073-1077. doi: 10.1016/j.cptl.2021.03.028. Epub 2021 Apr 15.


The Teachable Moments Matter (TMM) category of articles is designed to offer readers insight into a methodological issue identified within a companion article. Written in collaboration with one of these authors, these articles provide an opportunity to focus on a challenge experienced by the authors and, in the process, provide one or more perspectives as to how to successfully navigate this issue. The current TMM is focused on issues and pitfalls in validation. The Journal hopes this case-based approach will help highlight the nuance of a topic in context, something that might get "lost" in the entirety of a full-length article.

Keywords: Assessment; Communication; Conceptual framework; Validation; Validity.
