The application developed (IOS; Android) is presented as a "pocket toolbox". It allows to gather transversal information relevant to a practical field, in particular by integrating already existing materials. Specialists in a medical field and/or university professors are in charge of sorting and adding validated and high quality content in their fields specialization.
It can be downloaded by anyone with a SWITCH login. More specifically, the content available includes PDF documents (course book, management protocols, etc.), checklists allowing an exhaustive and systematic collection of data and videos (practical demonstrations of clinical examination and technical gestures), some of which can be accessed offline. Students also have the possibility to take notes in the application and to export these data in PDF format. In addition, they can ask questions or send specific requests directly from the application, which are then handled by the competent teachers.
The content is regularly updated to ensure that it is always current and adapted to current recommendations (from teaching and practice). Automatic alerts are sent to the authors of the documents so that they are frequently revalidated and updated. For each item, it is possible to easily visualize the last update date, the expiration date and the author's contact information.
