eLearning for undergraduate health professional education: A systematic review informing a radical transformation of health workforce development – Authors: Imperial College London, World Health Organization – 12 January 2015

“Overview

This publication on ‘eLearning for Undergraduate Health Professional Education’ responds to a need at the country level for evidence to inform and guide health professional education as an important vehicle in preparing health professionals to be ‘fit-for-purpose’. The World Health Organization (WHO) Department of Health Workforce in collaboration with the Department of Knowledge, Ethics and Research commissioned the Global eHealth Unit (GeHU) at Imperial College London to conduct a systematic review of the scientific literature to evaluate the effectiveness of eLearning for undergraduate health professional education.

At a global level, it will assist in the implementation of the WHO’s global human resources for health strategy by providing the best evidence of how and where eLearning can best be used in country settings. The report also provides a foundation for the development of future WHO guidelines for pre-service training and the direction for  future research.”

Planning e-learning for medical education – June 2010

Planning e-learning for medical education – June 2010 – The British Journal of Healthcare Computing and Information Management

“A relatively new strategy within clinical education, e-learning is becoming an increasingly utilised way of teaching new clinical techniques. However, the marriage of education and technology can be difficult to get right. Dr Nicholas Blackwell of the University of Leicester Medical School gives advice for those in the medical profession who are considering using e-learning as a teaching tool.

Both education and technology have experienced a period of major change over the past two decades, with the latter becoming an increasingly important tool in teaching and learning. To be effective, clinicians need to stay abreast of new initiatives, techniques and treatments within their profession, whilst the text books and printed materials that learners use can sometimes be out of date by the time they are published.

E-learning is one way that the speed of change currently taking place in clinical technology can be incorporated into education, so it is logical that many medical educators regard online learning as the way forward. However, e-learning is more than posting material on the web — if it is to be used effectively as a teaching resource, the materials used need to be devised by people with the appropriate skills and experience — which means the marriage of technology and clinical knowledge. So, if you have the responsibility for devising an online learning project, where do you start?”
