Innovation in e-learning: learning for all

Online learning is not a new concept for most in the medical profession. However surgical oncology is poorly represented, and in a world of ever changing research evidence, relying on published texts may not be efficient learning or an accurate representation of current practice for many trainees. This article demonstrates how our educational collaborative, ePOSSOM, approaches the problem. It outlines the development process of the whole project between ecancer and the Severn School of Surgery, UK, and provides links to the pilot completed modules on pancreatic cancer and it's treatment for the reader to experience.

Keywords: online education, medical education, pancreatic cancer, collaboration, surgical oncology, ePOSSOM
