Expert in My Pocket is a mobile-enabled repository of learning resources that demonstrate specific skills that nursing and paramedic students must acquire to provide safe and effective health care.
The videos are shown from a first person point of view (1PPoV) by expert health clinicians and are available in a high-quality format compatible with computers and mobile devices such as smart phones and tablets. Each video has an associated Skill Sheet that provides extended information about the skill.
Mobile communications technology can provide ’just-in-time’ support for students in the health disciplines to learn and practice specific clinical skills. This project creates a free, publicly accessible, standardised repository (website) of learning resources comprising video vignettes and supporting materials to enhance student development of psychomotor clinical skills. The resources are highly valuable to practitioners, students and educators in tertiary health disciplines.
The videos are presented from an innovative first person point of view by expert health professionals. The videos are specific to the Australian practice setting and available in a high-quality format compatible with computers and mobile devices such as smart phones and tablets. Quick Response codes for scanning by smart devices instantly connect the user with the required video.
