e-FACE e-learning programme launches new module on consent

Posted on: September 9th, 2020 by Hannah Denness No Comments

Health Education England elearning for healthcare (HEE elfh) has worked with the British Association of Oral and Maxillofacial Surgeons (BAOMS) to develop a new elearning module on consent.
Sessions within the module have been developed to demonstrate best practice, and are aimed at Dental Core Trainees (DCTs) and Specialty Registrars in oral and maxillofacial surgery (OMFS).

The module aims to tackle the limited consent knowledge many trainees have by providing consent process training and a certificate is awarded once the module is complete.

The new e-FACE module includes:

  • an introduction to consent that discusses the key principles of the consent process
  • a series of short clinical scenarios that focus on commonly-performed procedures.

The Consent module joins the existing 11 modules that cover the majority of the Dental Core Training Curriculum within the e-FACE programme. The programme is designed to support junior trainees working in OMFS departments. The content is also suitable as refresher material for those starting their speciality training.
