Recognizing a need to build the clinical and managerial skills of health care providers at sites in northern Pakistan, the eHealth Programme initiated eLearning services in 2015. In April, Aga Khan University (AKU) started broadcasting weekly sessions to health care providers at Aga Khan Booni Medical Centre, Gilgit Medical Centre and Singal Medical Centre. As part of eLearning, Continuing Medical Education (CME) sessions were also broadcast.
In the third quarter of 2015, it was observed that while the number of eLearning sessions offered from the previous to current quarter remained the same, participant attendance decreased considerably. This was because participants were not receiving credit for CME hours from AKU. In November, AKU began giving credit hours to participants at the three sites for attending the CME courses, allowing them to earn credit remotely. In addition to CME courses, AKU also broadcasts Grand Rounds, which are structured online conferences, to these sites.
