British association launches online oral health education course

The British Dental Association (BDA) has introduced a new online training course that qualifies U.K. dental care professionals to advise patients on oral health.

The eight-week course combines theoretical knowledge as well as the development of communication skills, according to the BDA. The course has been developed in collaboration with Oral Health Education-Southwest, Bristol.

The Oral Health Education for Dental Care Professionals course guides participants through 27 "bite-sized" modules comprising minilectures and complemented by animated videos and diagrams. A dedicated tutor supports participants; a textbook, revision notes, and mock exams are also provided.

The new online format allows for improved access and flexibility for participants, and also provides a cost-effective alternative that ensures the value of enhanced patient care, career development, and continuing professional development hours, the BDA said.

The cost is 475 pounds per student. For more information, visit the BDA Web site.
