Sarah and I have sent some e-mail around the globe the last days. I´m
posting some of it here, to possibly attract the attention of some
other health professionals or others interested in health topics..
1) Personally, I would really appreciate a web 2.0 environment to
discuss case stories, if I´m stuck with a case it would be great not
just to have access to my consultant, but also to a community of other
doctors around the globe to help me get the right diagnosis and
treatment if I post some video, text and reflection around the case.
This same community would be excellent for learning. Sarah points out
that health consumers also can join and give very valuable
perspectives in these discussions with reference to http://shannonstale.blogspot.com/
How open should/could these teaching/learning/consulting environments
be? What do you in this group think?
2 ) Ruth : In a rapid response to a global health crisis I think
internet learning programs could be of immense value. But is
information the bottleneck in such a case? And how much of a health
care profession can be learnt through the internet?
