Abstract (up to 200 words):
Eastern Area Health Education and East Carolina University have utilized internet based curriculum and evaluation techniques to standardize delivery of community based education of health care professionals since 1998. Modules based on disease processes were developed to provide the multiple disciplines a common base of knowledge for improved communication in health care planning. Case conferences are placed on the Internet site to allow for interactive team development of Interdisciplinary Care Plans. Community projects are posted to allow sharing of resources between geographical areas which could benefit from the development of educational materials and processes. Evaluation tools are posted for immediate feedback to program faculty and later analysis on group basis by discipline. The experience has been beneficial in meeting student, faculty, and program objectives. Future technological advances are planned for broadening student skills to interact with "teaching patients".
