BSP Patient Forum
As you will be aware, the BSP Patient Forum was established to give a voice to our patient community and help shape the future of gum health in the UK.
Professor Ian Needleman, who leads the Patient Forum, Dr Penny Hodge and Dr Mark Ide met with our dedicated volunteers earlier this month. They enjoyed a very successful meeting and have formulated some exciting plans to help spread the word about the importance of good oral health. The latest report can be read here.
One idea they are progressing is to create shareable resources to increase public awareness of periodontitis. A series of short podcasts are planned to reach the target audience of patients and the public. The Patient Forum members were delighted with the success of the pilot podcast and a plan for future podcast topics has been agreed.
We shall keep you updated on developments and look forward to sharing these valuable resources with you on our website.
