Webinar recording and presentations: "How to Obtain Accreditation for eLearning Courses for Health Workers"

Knowledge for Health (K4Health)

On 7 August 2018, K4Health hosted a webinar on how to obtain accreditation for global health e-coursesKeeping up-to-date on new advances and information in medical care is critical for frontline health workers, yet access to quality professional development is often challenging for individuals with limited resources. Accredited eLearning courses can address this challenge. Many training institutions and eLearning authors seek course accreditation to meet health workers’ licensure requirements. The process for obtaining accreditation is rewarding, but can be difficult to navigate.

Drawing from real-life experiences at the regional and country levels, webinar presenters offered tips and tricks for navigating the accreditation process and ensuring that training curriculum, specifically that of eLearning courses, meets the requirements of local regulatory bodies.
