Population Health & Professional Practice IIOH (PHPP) builds on the PHPP year one curriculum which has been designed to enable the development of skills required to be a critical decision maker in the contemporary role of an Oral Health Therapist (OHT). Oral Health Therapists must make calculated decisions that relate to effective patient care, with community and population health outcomes in mind. Oral Health Therapists must be able to identify significant population oral health trends and developing a deep appreciate for the broader population drivers of those trends. This course comprises of two content units: Social Context of Dentistry, which aims to increase students awareness of the role of social context in shaping an individual's dental behaviours and the implications of this for clinical practice. And Evidence-Based Dentistry aims to equip students with the skills necessary to sustain and enhance the clinical practice of dentistry using scientific information published in biomedical journals. Topics include biostatistics and epidemiology.
