UK EBD Teachers' Group inaugral meeting

UK EBD Teachers' Group

Seven representatives of UK dental schools who are responsible for the delivery of Evidence-Based Dentistry learning met online for the first time yesterday.

Nicola Innes from Dundee and myself initiated the formation of the group out of a recognition that there was probably some good practice, learning materials and other resources that could be shared between us and others trying to bring EBD into undergraduate curricula.

The hangout, which included representatives from Liverpool, Manchester, Cardiff, Glasgow, Dundee, and Queen Mary U. London, allowed us to briefly introduce ourselves and to begin sharing common issues about delivering the EBD curriculum. These included: 
  • how much EBD to teach and when
  • how to facilitate or encourage the use of evidence by clinical staff with students
  • sharing online learning resources
Colleagues from Belfast, King's College London, Penninsula, and Sheffield were unable to join the hangout on this occasion but another hangout is planned soon.

If there are any colleagues responsible for delivering EBD that Nicola and I have not contacted please do get in touch. My contact details are available here.
