Welcome to ‘Articulate’ the online interactive glossary
for Oral Health Professional’s Education in Europe.
Articulate is conceived as part of Intellectual Output 07 of the Erasmus+ project “O-Health-Edu” with two distinct purposes in mind.
Firstly, is it plays a central role in the O-Health-Edu project by providing clarity around terms in use in Oral Health Professional’s Education throughout Europe. Having a shared understanding of such terms is critical in the data collection phase of this project. Articulate is thus conceived as a means of enabling shared understanding of terms to improve the robustness of comparative data.
Secondly, it is hoped that over time Articulate will facilitate clarity between stakeholder groups by clearly agreeing consensus definitions of core terms. Removing ambiguity around such terms means any associated misunderstanding will be minimised.
The definition of terms and how we understand them can evolve over time through an iterative process. Therefore, Articulate has been created to be interactive to allow users to make suggestions of term definitions and also to suggest new terms that need defining. We encourage you to search these terms and where necessary feel free to give input and suggest improvements.
