Educational Resources for Dental Professionals

KEDS 2018

Fluoride And Caring for Children's Teeth (FACCT) study - Health Research Board (HRB) Knowledge Exchange and Dissemination Scheme (KEDS) 2018: What the Researcher and the Dentist want to share, supporting knowledge dissemination.

The aim of this project was to develop a set of online educational resources to disseminate the results of the FACCT study to General Dental Practitioners. The project was completed in collaboration with the Irish Faculty of Primary Dental Care (IFPDC), whose input guided the structure and content of the materials.
