SharcFM is a collaborative project, supported by the College of Family Physicians of Canada (CFPC), http://cfpc.ca, around shared curriculum and learning objects for Family Medicine.
SharcFM was launched a couple of years ago and is steered by the CUFMED group (family medicine clerkship directors across the country) to bring together a number of shared objects, cases and clinical cards. OpenLabyrinth, as an open-source, open-standards platform, has provided one of the tools by which such content is shared.
We received some funding a few months ago to bring the collection of virtual patient cases up to full speed. Based on the learning objectives specified by the CUFMED group, (https://sites.google.com/site/sharcfm/sharc-fm-home), our small group of clinical authors have been busily assembling cases, instructor guides and ancillary materials to support this project.
Watch this space next month when we announce the full list of SharcFM cases.
