Abstract

This is the first use of distance blended learning to upgrade district health workers in Nepal and perhaps for non-doctor anesthesia providers globally. Key success factors were motivated students, cultural and contextualized clinical content, good educational mentoring relationships with regular communication, central IT and motivational support, and face-to-face midcourse clinical contact time.
