Gliederung

Text

Introduction: Pharmacases.de is a novel e-learning website of clinical pharmacology that presents clinically relevant aspects of pharmacology and toxicology in an interactive and multi-medial manner. The objective of the project Pharmacases.de was to develop an innovative concept for creating high quality e-learning content that integrates and promotes the theoretical and cooperative skills of final year medical students and is easily adoptable by cooperating institutes and hospitals.

Methods and Results: A peer-teaching concept was developed in which final year medical students with the elective pharmacology (PJ Wahlfach Pharmakologie) independently researched and wrote e-learning lessions ("pharmacases"). Subject-specific expertise was acquired by consulting elective students of other disciplines. The average time for the generation of one e-learning lesson by the peer network was 10 days. At present, the open access website contains 49 pharmacases, online quizzes, a discussion forum and a feedback form. Pharmacases.de has approx. 1000 visitors/month with following evaluation results: "excellent": 76%, "good": 15% and "satisfactory": 9% (n=33).

Summary and Conclusion: The didactic concept of Pharmacases.de enabled the efficient generation of high quality e-learning content in a student-centered and interdisciplinary manner. The peer-teaching approach supports the collaborative skills of final year medical students and facilitates the transfer of theoretical pharmacological knowledge into clinical practice.
