Description:
The Specialist Certificate in Health Promotion (Oral Health) has been in existence since 1999. It was initiated by the Dental Health Foundation in response to the Department of Health and Children’s 1994 Dental Health Action Plan. It was developed in collaboration with the Department of Health Promotion, National University of Ireland, Galway, and the Society of Chief and Principal Dental Surgeons in Ireland. Funding support was provided by the Health Promotion Unit, Department of Health and Children, to establish the development and inaugural year of the programme. The course is provided by the National University of Ireland, Galway, and the Dental Health Foundation. The 12-month part-time course aims to provide participants with a professional education and training in the principles and practice of oral health promotion. This evaluation was conducted to determine the effectiveness of the course in providing participants with the training required for the practice of oral health promotion. A survey methodology was employed for this evaluation involving graduates who have completed the course to date. A 57% response rate was achieved.
