Background:
Epidemiologic surveillance programs have evolved from focusing on spontaneous reports to the proactive monitoring of adverse effects and may be included within the risk management programs. This new approach of epidemiologic surveillance and risk management propose a set of activities aimed to obtain as much information to evaluate, minimize and prevent the occurrence of adverse incidents that affect patients during the care related activities. This approach is framed in the public health and patient safety politics nowadays accepted worldwide.
In the last three years we conducted a set of different literature searches about risk management systems and epidemiologic surveillance practices to propose to the national regulatory agency, INVIMA, the adoption of an epidemiologic surveillance program focused on the products used in health care in Colombia. As a result the aforementioned Colombian normativity about adverse incidence monitoring and control moves toward a systemic perspective based on the inclusion of risk management and patient safety active and proactive activities.
In this regard, we have been proposed that the use of Information and Communication Technologies (ICT) through teaching strategies as B-learning, will impact the adoption of knowledge, learning skills and motivation necessaries for the new responsibilities of health workers in this field.

Objective:
To Inform and structure a proposal for a didactic B-learning based strategy to promote the adoption of patient safety and risk management based practices in health workers, according to the new Colombian epidemiologic surveillance politics.

Materials and methods:
Based on a detailed pedagogic analysis of materials produced during the last three years (documents, primers, slide presentations) and after conducting an internet based inquiry about the familiarity of Colombian health workers in terms of disposition, abilities and motivation through internet based courses we decanted a series of contents to be articulated on a B-learning strategy to be developed during the next months

Results:
We identified, decanted and re-structured different subject areas to be included in the course modules. These are described below:
• Background and history of risk management and patient safety.
• Regulations applied.
• Model risk management and operational components.
• Applied case exercises.
With these modules already identified, the next steps of the process are the development of the proposed scripts, of the respective interactive aids, the initial LMS format and the initial launch and challenge of a pilot prototype.

Conclusion:
A B-learning didactic strategy is a feasible alternative to achieve a comprehensive cost-effective training program in order to include the different health provider actors in a risk management and patient safety based epidemiologic surveillance system in Colombia.
