Work on the first intellectual output IO01 the Strategic Scoping for Evaluation of Oral Health Professionals' Education which is led by Dr James Field and Mr Jonathan Dixon of the University of Sheffield commenced in October 2019.
Consultations and communications on the evolving search strategy that would inform the scoping exercise was been shared with the key stakeholders at a European level. In particular the Federation of European Dental Regulators and Competent Authorities (FEDCAR), The Council of European Dentists (CED) and the European Dental Students Association (EDSA) have all been included in consultation efforts to guide the scoping exercise. The evolving search strategy is summarised in the document below (IO01 Evolving search strategy).
Presentations on the outline of the aims and the objectives of the project were made and can be accessed from the related documents section of this page (Project Presentation to FEDCAR (STJ) November 2019 ) and (Project Presentation to CED (JF) November 2019).
Following consultation and drafting a final document was submitted for peer review by the European Journal for Dental Education. The work of IO01 completed with publication in the EJDE of 'O-HEALTH-EDU: A scoping review on the reporting of oral health professional education in Europe'.
