It’s all about luck, opportunity, and timing.
I will be releasing the blog’s first ever Paucis Verbis (PV) native app this year. After a few years of brainstorming and lots of reader inquiries about an app, we were approached by two different app-building companies in the same week. I’m incredibly humbled to be approached by organizations, who can see the potential of these pocket cards (which started as actual index cards while I was in residency). It is an incredibly exciting time to be in the world of education and social media!
I need your help with step 1.
We plan to release a small subset of “core” PV cards, which are the most useful in the ED and day-to-day practice. I, however, have no way to track how my PV cards are being used because they are freely available on the blog, in Evernote, and in Dropbox. Please help me get a sense of which PV cards to include in the initial core set.
YOU can shape the content of what’s released in the PV Cards App (version 1.0). The list is a bit long with 122 titles, but please spend a minute to fill out this survey. Here is the indexed list of PV cards and their associated blog posts: PV card index. Thanks in advance.
If all goes well, this app will be available for FREE.
