Description

The CAREER project is a longitudinal research study seeking to understand how the COVID-19 pandemic is affecting the anxiety, feelings of uncertainty and preparedness for practice of early career dental health professionals and dental health professionals working in a primary care setting in Scotland.

Findings will inform the future provision of educational support and training and may be used to provide health services with a stronger knowledge base about how to support and prepare dental professionals in stressful workplace situations.

The study is being undertaken in partnership between NHS Education for Scotland, the University of Dundee and the University of St Andrews.
