Abstract

Technological and social changes taking place in recent years are affecting the way we are presenting and transferring knowledge in healthcare education and a certain shift in emphasis on learning rather than teaching has been noticed as we rightly move towards a learner-centred curriculum more specifically blended-learning and e-learning modules. In the field of healthcare the life of knowledge is shorter than ever and causes increasing pressure to remain at the forefront of medical education throughout a health professionals’ career. Therefore whilst discussing implementation of e-learning in healthcare education at undergraduate level models consisting of blended learning (combination of a mix of on-line and face-to-face training) should be encouraged (Mitchell & Honore 2007). That said in healthcare education interpersonal contact cannot be omitted by building a virtual environment as it is a crucial factor in training future practitioners therefore e-learning should be accompanied by social networking.
