The e-learning for the Health Agents Programme (eHAP) is developed to educate Health Agents . The concept of a Health Agent finds its inspiration in the term Change Agent as it is used in organizational theory. In the eHAP programme, a Health Agent is a person who can integrate activities of health promotion in the main tasks and responsibilities of his or her workplace. Through improved human capability and alterations in organizational routines and systems, the Health Agent can enhance the health of the local community in which he or she works. The eHAP is aimed at persons who work in the primary health care sector, in the educational system and in catering.
The programme presented in this publication can be considered as a prototype framework for a work-based course using e-learning. The prototype can be adapted to form curricula for courses where the needs of specific settings are taken into account.
