Comparative health systems: international collaborative education using the internet.

Journal Article

Between January and June 1998, postgraduate and undergraduate students from seven centres participated in a discussion of suicide from a public health perspective, using a listserver on the Internet. Most contributions were in English but a few were in Spanish with subsequent translation. Eighteen out of 32 students responding to evaluation, found the module worthwhile and their learning objectives were met. After making a few modifications to procedures resulting from the evaluation, further rounds of discussion were started in October 1998. International discussion groups using listservers on the Internet provide a new and apparently effective method of education.
