This Summer course involved three key themes: 1. Clinical Communication; 2. Evidence Based Dentistry; 3. Community-Based Participatory Research for Health Equity.

1. Title: Clinical Communication
The clinical communication course will focus on providing students with answers to the two questions:
[1] Why clinical communication skills are important to dentists/dental professionals?
[2] How to provide effective consultation to patients through delivering person-centred care?

We will explore together what are the common problems when engaging patients in dental consultations which include history taking, diagnosis, treatment planning & oral health education. Later we will identify tips and pitfalls of communication strategies through reviewing videos.

2. Title: Evidence Based Dentistry
The evidence-based dentistry course will provide an introduction to Evidence-based Dentistry and provide an overview of systematic reviews and diagnostic tests. Participants will also undertake critical appraisal of a number of different study designs.

3. Title: Community-Based Participatory Research for Health Equity
These sessions will promote interdisciplinary dialogues for health equity of vulnerable and marginalised groups introducing participatory health research approaches to foster community’ development, knowledge exchange and social transformation. We will look at tools for community empowerment and experience the active and participatory techniques of popular education by Paulo Freire as a foundation for a practice engaged to promote more health equity.
