Following fresh warnings about the dangers and legal implications of missing oral cancer in patients, it’s never been more important to ensure you have all the skills and knowledge you need to detect this potentially fatal disease early.
In support of Mouth Cancer Awareness, the Association of Dental Groups (ADG) is pleased to offer an opportunity for you to brush up on your skills.
IDH has developed a CPD (continuous professional development) module on behalf of the ADG, designed specifically to help you identify oral cancer as early on as possible.
The module is completely free of charge and is available to all healthcare professionals here.
To claim your CPD credits there is a small charge of only £20, £5 of which goes directly to the British Dental Health Foundation.
With a rise of more than 30% in the number of new oral cancer cases between 2000 and 2011 (www.dentalhealth.org, 2011), and the latest figures showing 6,767 new cases a year, make sure you are prepared for the future.
Find out more about the vital free training available to you by contacting the ADG.
