Abstract

The paper describes the results of an e-learning experimental project for Continuous Medical Education (CME) in Occupational Medicine in terms of: extent of the e-learning courses usage by the healthcare personnel, knowledge acquisition and satisfaction. 11 courses have been available for 11 months during which 2,034 users all over Italy enrolled in 5,183 courses with a success percentage of 72% and a significant difference between test scores performed before and after attending the e-learning courses. Also user's satisfaction, inspected through a questionnaire, has provided good results. Starting from the experience reported, the authors are confident that e-learning will gain ground and evolve as an effective and appreciated educational mean for CME.
