Free to take, it consists of three modules of clinical scenario-based quizzes, each of which provides a printable e-certificate of one hour’s verified CPD upon successful completion. Feedback is provided along the way, with the aim that by the end of the modules, participants will be able to demonstrate application of the principles of sound antimicrobial stewardship to the clinical scenarios.

The modules were developed by Tara Renton, professor in oral surgery at King’s College London, Greg Gerrard, council member of the BAOS, Dr Noha Seoudi, a specialist in clinical oral microbiology representing the Association of Clinical Oral Microbiologists (ACOM), and Dr Nick Palmer, editor and co-author of Antimicrobial Prescribing for General Dental Practitioners.

Since 2015, healthcare providers in the UK have had a statutory duty to reduce the risk of antimicrobial resistance by ensuring appropriate use of antibiotics. Whilst the aim of the modules is to promote responsible use of antibiotics in oral surgery, the educational content is of relevance to all dental prescribers, including those who place dental implants, undertake minor oral surgery or practise in special interest areas, and has been endorsed by the Faculty of General Dental Practice (UK) and ACOM.
