ECHO exploits new media to develop learning methods which are best suited to health communication. This discipline is nowadays recognised as a fundamental element for the training of health operators generally: thus there is an urgent need of integrating it in curricula for medicine students, as well as to provide continuing education to health professionals. The topics of ECHO’s modules include theories and methods for the analysis and design applications of health communication at the personal and media levels, and by utilizing traditional and new technological communication channels. ECHO is available in English, French, German and Italian and is targeted to students of medicine, public health, health economics and communication, as well as to people already active in the field of health generally.
