Background: The aim of this project is to process psychosomatic and child and adolescent psychiatry according to a didactic concept which aims at problem-oriented, case-related, self-directed learning. Method: Docs 'n Drugs offers favourable conditions for the realisation of this concept. Accordingly, this e-learning software was extended to be able to contextually illustrate the structure of psychodiagnostic decision making. Results: The structural extension of Docs 'n Drugs has been successful; 10 psychosomatic and paediatric and adolescent psychiatric cases could be designed and consigned to the programme. Outlook: The challenge for the future is represented by the integration of these didactic elements in university teaching. Central to this is on the one hand the accessibility of the educational objectives to the learners, and on the other the guarantee of the technical conditions for smooth running.
