Found this very interesting and as my actual field is dental hygiene I felt that all medical/ dental should be singing off the same hymn sheet, and indeed they are.A very worthwhile course and taught me a lot!

I found this module helpful, and demanding. The case studies dealt clearly with challenging and realistic clinical problems; the Resource Centre was very user friendly. I did the module as preparation for the day course in September; and feel much better prepared as a result.
