eLearning: The Way Forward in Continuing Medical Education?

elearning healthcare

eLearning has made space for greater flexibility in education, attuning to the needs of individual learners – from schedules to learning speeds.  With online learning making headway across all fields of knowledge, what is the potential of eLearning for healthcare professionals (HCPs)?

In Singapore, self-study and accredited distance learning programs with verifiable self-assessment can, respectively, account for 10 and 36 out of the 50 points needed over a 2-year practicing certificate for doctors.

More than greater flexibility in learning

Given the potential of eLearning to impact clinical practice and patient care in Asia, successful engagement and enrollment of HCPs in eLearning programs will require the credibility of the source material and accredited content.

In a study published in the Journal of Continuing Education in the Health Professions, credibility  – established through affiliation with trusted organizations and accreditation, emerged as the dominant theme influencing a physician’s participation in online CME programs.

Now, healthcare practitioners are re-experiencing a new way of learning with Wiley’s quality content through ACCME-accredited eLearning programs that are freely available on Wiley Health Learning.

Wiley Health Learning

The same study identified content and control (ease of navigation to get to relevant content) as the other two themes that influenced a physician’s participation in eLearning.  Wiley Health Learning offers exactly this.
