The Colgate oral health network and the Alliance for Cavity Free Future Present
The European Core Caries Curriculum (ECCC) pre-meeting workshop
Wednesday 24th August 2016 09:30 to 13:30
Room 115, Campus de Bellvitge
First published in November 2011 in a special edition of the European Journal of Dental Education entitled ‘First Consensus Workshop on the Development of a European Core Curriculum in Cariology’, the European CCC has been adopted by a range of dental schools across the globe, and now, five years on, should be becoming a key component in the undergraduate dental curriculum throughout Europe.
The European CCC was produced as a collaborative effort between ADEE and ORCA (European Organisation for Caries Research). The Alliance for Cavity-Free Future (ACFF) have subsequently also been involved in dissemination and implementation activities and, across Europe, host a Collaborative Council which includes ORCA, ADEE and EDSA.
ACFF are delighted to invite ADEE 2016 delegates to participate in this pre-meeting workshop, supported by a grant from Colgate-Palmolive, during which we will, along with representatives from EDSA, revisit the history of the ECCC, its spread to date and then explore means of enhancing its utility, facilitating its implementation and exploring how an ADEE Special Interest Group (SIG) might help in changing the way that the European Core Caries Curriculum is viewed and implemented throughout European Dental Schools and beyond.
The workshop will provide delegates the opportunity to understand what has been achieved through the initial collaboration between ORCA and ADEE, how the ECCC has been adapted in different Countries globally and help to shape further implementation activities through a range of partnerships.
