Wrigley has boosted its investment in professional education to launch free verified CPD online
A timely launch for those 40,000 or so dental care professionals still yet to achieve their minimum requirement of compulsory CPD this year, the Wrigley Oral Healthcare Programme has published Module 1 of a brand new series of verified CPD, available to dental professionals free of charge online at www.wrigleyoralhealthcare.co.uk/cpd.
The Wrigley Oral Healthcare Programme is not only active in the UK and Ireland, but globally, with access to a wealth of the latest oral healthcare insights and clinical papers from around the world. From commissioned research papers authored by industry professionals such as leading dentists, hygienists and nutrition experts; through to original research performed within the Wrigley Science Institute (WSI) in Chicago, the Programme’s goal is to share this wealth of knowledge with dental professionals in the UK, allowing them to attain verified CPD in the process of increasing their knowledge.
Louisa Rowntree, Wrigley Oral Healthcare Programme Manager in the UK said: 'I’m delighted to announce that we now offer our members fully verifiable CPD, available free of charge on the Wrigley Oral Healthcare Programme website. Following a hugely successful partnership with leading dental professional publisher Stephen Hancocks Ltd back in March, we realised the appetite for convenient and readily available CPD and have developed our website to offer this, providing us with a hub to share knowledge from Wrigley Oral Healthcare initiatives worldwide.'
Independently verified and authored by dental hygienist and nutrition expert, Juliette Reeves, Module 1 is titled ‘Mouth Maintenance’ and equates to 1 hour of verifiable CPD.
The article presents the latest insights into the importance of saliva to oral health, and aims to refresh your knowledge of the systemic and clinical implications of xerostomia, along with management techniques. Module 2 will be released in August 2013.
