The World Health Organization World Health Report conveys that a significant increase is needed in global healthcare resourcing to meet current and future demand for health professionals. eLearning presents a possible opportunity to change and optimize training by providing a scalable means for instruction, thus reducing the costs for training health professionals and providing patient education. Research literature often suggests that a benefit of eLearning is its cost-effectiveness compared with face-to-face instruction, yet there is limited evidence comparing design and production costs with other forms of instruction, or the establishment of standards for budgeting for these costs.
