Implementation Strategy in Dental Services (CPD) / Course details

Year of entry: 2024

Course description

Our Implementation Strategy in Dental Services CPD course looks at the opportunities for improvement within dental health services.

Dental problems continue to cause much morbidity and incur large treatment costs, despite effective preventative management being possible for most of these problems. In high income economies, historical patterns and complex vested interests have constrained change.

You will examine the ways in which professionals can anticipate and address barriers to change through the practical implementation of strategy into delivery of appropriate and effective dental services.

This course is aimed at clinicians, managers, commissioners, providers and researchers, as well as specialist registrars.

You will achieve 150 verifiable CPD hours upon completion of the course.

Teaching and learning

Teaching will be web-based with a high degree of student-led learning through interactive exercises to test understanding built into web-based teaching materials, and exercises and assignments involving seeking out, retrieving and reflecting upon information from a range of mainly web-based resources.

On average, you should expect to spend approximately 10 hours a week on the unit.

Coursework and assessment

You will submit two assessed assignments of 1,500 words mid-semester and 2,500 words at the end of the semester.

Student participation in the online discussion boards also forms part of the assessment for this unit.
