These methods have included postal correspondence, two-way radio conferencing, video conferencing and in the last decade the Internet. The emergence of the World Wide Web (WWW) in the early 1990s, coupled with increasing computer processing power and reduced computing costs have led to more CME materials and resources coming 'online' to assist health care professionals stay up-to-date without having to leave their office.
