Abstract and Keywords

Health personnel regularly confront new and sometimes critical situations that add to the already heavy burden of providing healthcare with inadequate resources. This article describes Health Sciences Online (HSO), an initiative to improve professional educational resources for those in the global health community interested in neuroethics and other health sciences disciplines. HSO is placed in the context of online health professional education and the technological advances that make such education possible, and the article presents the strategic components of HSO project development and implementation in neuroethics and neuroscience overall, and addresses some issues of future developments in distance learning. New models of training and innovative ways of delivering such training should be further explored and tested in order to make neuroethics content widely available, not only in countries with relatively high volume of neuroethics content development, but also to their eager colleagues globally.

Keywords: healthcare, Health Sciences Online, neuroethics, professional educational resources, distance learning, global health community
