SCRIPT: supporting safer prescribing practices in dentistry

Rachel Gowland, 19 August 2021

The Dental SCRIPT elearning programme aims to improve knowledge of prescribing and medicines safety in the dental setting. It is now freely available to Foundation dentists in England and is also suitable as CPD training for qualified dentists through licensed access.

The programme consists of eight modules covering a range of topics around dental prescribing and therapeutic groups.

Dental SCRIPT modules include:

  • Medication Errors and Adverse Drug Reactions
  • Prescription Documentation and the Drug History
  • Special Patient Groups
  • Using the BNF(C)
  • Management of Infection
  • Medical Emergencies
  • Pain, Ulceration and Inflammation
  • Periprocedural Prescribing

Every module takes approximately 60 minutes to complete. All course materials have been authored by a team of expert healthcare professionals and are regularly reviewed and updated.

Benefits from using SCRIPT elearning modules
