SCRIPT – supporting safer prescribing practices in dentistry

Rachel Gowland, 17 December 2020

The SCRIPT elearning programme for dentistry covers a range of topics relating to prescribing and medicines safety in the dental setting.

Modules are written specifically for foundation dentists and general dental practitioners for continuing professional development.

There are eight modules available:

  • Medication Errors and Adverse Drug Reactions
  • Prescription Documentation and the Drug History
  • Special Patient Groups
  • Utilising the BNF(C)
  • Dental infections
  • Medical Emergencies
  • Pain, Ulceration and Inflammation
  • Periprocedural Prescribing

Each 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.

What are the benefits in using the SCRIPT elearning programmes?

  • Safer prescribing
    SCRIPT enhances knowledge and confidence in prescribing correctly, improving medicines management and patient safety.
  • Professional development
    Certificates are made available on completion of a module, which can be used for online learning portfolios as evidence of continuing professional development.
  • Flexible learning
    SCRIPT is easily accessible and intuitive to use, allowing users to complete modules at their convenience and refer back to modules at any time during their training.
  • Modules mapped to DTF Competency Framework
    Each of the SCRIPT modules have been individually mapped to relevant prescribing and medicines-related competencies, which can be viewed within each module.

How do I access the elearning?

SCRIPT is free to foundation dentists; you can register to access the SCRIPT elearning portfolios by visiting the SCRIPT website.
