NEW Resources for Oral Health Professionals

This three days course will equip you with the right tools to improve the oral health and long-term well-being of children who undergo cleft surgery. The course is designed to ensure all members of the cleft care team are aware of the importance of oral health and can take an active role in preventing oral diseases. The goal is that on completion, the whole team will be confident, competent clinicians who are able to apply their knowledge to prevent and diagnose oral diseases and know when to refer patients onwards. Another key goal of the workshop is that participating oral health professionals (OHP) acquire the skills to disseminate their learning to colleagues in their hospital or clinic. The course is designed around specific learning outcomes and the material includes a Trainers Manual and an Advocacy guide.
