The LIFE (Life-saving Instruction for Emergencies) app for Android smartphones is launching today in Kenya. LIFE is a 3D simulation training app for smartphones that teaches healthcare workers how to manage medical emergencies using game-like training techniques to reinforce the key steps that need to be performed in order to save lives.
The first three scenarios available for LIFE teach healthcare workers how to resuscitate a newborn baby. After they have learned the correct life-saving steps, users are awarded a certificate of completion which can be registered with the Kenya Paediatric Association for Continuing Professional Development (CPD) credit.
