Eastman Dental Hospital Education Centre has launched a new package of elearning for UK NHS dental teams, offering a range of clinical and non-clinical content to upskill and inform clinical practice and support the Advancing Dental Care (ADC) agenda.
The training offers dentists, dental nurses, hygienists, and other dental professionals easy access to tailored, interactive learning based on the latest techniques and evidence. It is designed to elevate expertise and proficiency, build confidence in daily clinical practice and balance learning against the professional demands of a busy schedule.
The elearning has been created in partnership with NHS England’s Technology Enhanced Learning (TEL) team and the first phase of the programme is available on the elearning for healthcare (elfh) Hub. The first modules are:
Child focused dental practices (CFDP): A series of 11 webinars focussing on the treatment of children and young people with tips and guidance on tools and techniques that can be used in general dental practice.
General Dentistry e-learning: This series of 13 webinars provides guidance on the assessment, diagnosis and management of patients with general oral diseases. Each session provides up to date information on current thinking and management.
Future phases of the programme will include modules on Restorative Based e-learning, followed by the Core Learning Series for Dental Care Professionals (DCP).
NHS staff can register for the elfh Hub for free and the modules and webinars can be accessed online 24/7 so learning content is always accessible and can be completed when convenient. Each completed session provides certification of continued professional development.
