Reviewing the relevance and effectiveness of the WHO Global Code of Practice: Call for papers - Deadline extended until 28 February
The Human Resources for Health journal in collaboration with the World Health Organization, and the Global Health Workforce Alliance , is inviting research to gather new evidence on the relevance and effectiveness of the Code since its adoption in 2010, and to inform the five-year review of the Code, scheduled for the World Health Assembly (WHA) in May 2015. The deadline for submissions has been extended to 28 February 2015
To monitor the progress made in implementing the Code, and in accordance with the request of the World Health Assembly (Resolution WHA63.16), a national self-assessment tool was created for Member States.

Electronic learning could enable millions more students to train as doctors and nurses worldwide, according to research.
A new systematic review of the literature commissioned by the World Health Organisation (WHO) and carried out by Imperial College London researchers aiming at establishing the evidence-base for eLearning concludes that eLearning is likely to be as effective as traditional methods for training health professionals.
