NHS Medicines Safety Released for iOS and Android Devices
Digital Workshed and the CPPE have launched the Medicine Safety app.
The app is a quick way for any health care professional to test their knowledge on high risk areas for medicines safety incidents. It provides a quiz with a series of 10 multiple choice questions chosen randomly from a bank of questions for each topic or mixed up in a “Lucky Dip”. The topics included so far are:
– Medicines Safety
“Currently aimed at hospital staff, this app is designed to be used by junior doctors, pharmacists, pharmacy technicians, nurses, non-medical prescribers and undergraduate trainees. The format is simple, quick to complete & fun to use so it can be used anywhere by individuals in a spare 5 minutes. Crucially, it stimulates further learning so it can be used to generate ideas for Continuing Professional Development (CPD) portfolios as well as improving practice. You can even request a certificate of completion at the end! Another option is to use it in group learning situations as a starting point for discussion on key safety issues.” – Liz Reid, Development Pharmacist, CPPE
We have built built iPhone and iPad apps with different sized grid layouts for each. We have also built an android app which closely matches the iOs app but reflects the android user experience.
