BDA/CRUK oral cancer toolkit: finalist in industry awards
20 November 2017
The BDA/Cancer Research UK (CRUK) oral cancer toolkit for dentists and general practitioners was chosen as one of five finalists in the Excellence in healthcare professional education and support category, at the Pharmaceutical Market Excellence Awards, held on 15 November.
The award was won by a learning platform for multiple sclerosis nurses, but the judges praised the oral cancer toolkit, commenting: "CRUK and the BDA impressed us with their ability to educate and recruit. This was an expansive programme with a wide reach and it clearly addresses an important need".
The toolkit is available free to all members of the dental team and aims to help you identify and refer possible cases of oral cancers. It includes information on the signs to look out for, how to respond, as well as possible risk factors and includes a CPD quiz, with three hours of verifiable CPD.
