Mentions: We presented the content in an easily accessible and structured way organised around the three sets of tools ‘improving critical skills’, ‘enabling exchange of health information’ and ‘improved access to reliable research-based sources of health information’ as points of departure (see Figure3). In this way, users have the option of quickly locating the tool or information they need, such as, for example, help to find information on how to prevent the common cold. This approach does not force users to view the information in a certain specific or prescriptive way when accessing the portal, tools or databases, and allows them to choose what they want to read and when.
