The Public Health
Training Network (PHTN) is a distance learning network
of people and resources that takes training and information to
the learner. PHTN uses a variety of instructional
media ranging from print-based to videotape and multimedia to meet
the training and information needs of the health workforce nationwide.
Since 1993, PHTN has delivered nearly 1,000,000 training and information
opportunities to health professionals in a variety of settings. Evaluation
studies demonstrate that programs delivered through PHTN, and distance
learning as a medium, are effective ways to update and enhance professional
competencies. PHTN's success has stimulated state and federal agencies
to produce training programs and to build their own capacity to meet
the training and information needs of the health workforce through
distance learning. State health departments are expanding their capacity,
supporting field operations, and developing new training and information
opportunities that address their unique needs. International partners
are taking similar action and helping PHTN move toward realization
of its long-term vision of a global network that will serve the training
and learning needs of health practitioners worldwide.
