11:00 a.m. – 12:00 p.m.

Interprofessional approaches to self-care education in oral health

This is a webinar version of our programming from the 2018 annual meeting (want to provide the opportunity to participate to those who were not able to do so at the meeting). This program is intended for faculty members of the Self-Care Therapeutics/Nonprescription Medicine SIG and the Interprofessional Education (IPE) Community as it will discuss a variety of interprofessional approaches to provide pharmacy students exposure to oral health management. Collaborative teaching and learning experiences will be discussed, including an overview and demonstration of active learning tools that can be incorporated into both the classroom and/or experiential settings. The session will also discuss development of interprofessional relationships with dental medicine practitioners and dental hygienists.


  1. Discuss the importance of collaborative care between dentistry and pharmacy and how educational experiences in self-care can provide exposure to interprofessional oral health practices
  2. Describe the development and implementation of interprofessional, community-based experiences involving pharmacy students, dental students, and dental hygiene students.
  3. Discuss didactic, active-learning, and small-group methods utilized in teaching oral health care within a self-care course.
  4. Utilize active learning teaching tools to teach self-care oral health principles to pharmacy students in both the didactic and experiential settings.
  5. Assess the impact of interprofessional education activities on students’ knowledge of oral health and over-the-counter oral health products
