New SCRIPT elearning on dental pain and bipolar affective disorder

Louise Garrahan, 15 December 2023

Healthcare professionals can now access two new modules in the SCRIPT elearning programme on odontogenic orofacial pain and bipolar affective disorder.

The first module, aimed at primary care dentists, covers the diagnosis of commonly occurring presentations of pain seen in primary care dental settings. The course focuses on odontogenic/dento-alveolar pain management.

It can be accessed free of charge through the SCRIPT Dentistry portfolio, which consists of 10 modules, aimed to improve prescribing competency and safety among Foundation and qualified dentists.

The second module helps healthcare staff to understand the treatment and management of bipolar affective disorder. It provides information on the medicines commonly used in the management of acute mania and prophylaxis of bipolar affective disorder. It also provides detailed practical advice on the role and risks of toxicity associated with lithium.

This module within the SCRIPT Medicine and Surgery, Ambulance Service and Pharmacy portfolios is also available free of charge to learners.
