ADEE members are being consulted on Content Statements for Environmental Sustainability

Members will be aware that the GED has been updated to incorporate sustainability throughout the curriculum. Published research and discussions at ADEE meetings have demonstrated that significant barriers exist for embedding Environmental Sustainability in the undergraduate Oral Health Professional (OHP) curriculum. These barriers largely relate to:

  • A lack of practical guidance to embed this topic in the curriculum
  • Limited time in the curriculum to embed new concepts
  • A lack of knowledge or expertise to teach Environmental Sustainability

In order to support educators in overcoming these barriers, evidence-based and subject-specific content statements have been developed. These statements have been mapped to all subjects within the OHP curriculum. It is envisaged that educators will take these content statements and incorporate them into the curriculum subject or educational event as they see fit. The aim is to create the content for a syllabus of Environmental Sustainability in Oral Healthcare that is consistent on an international basis and facilitate educators to integrate (both horizontally and vertically) this concept within their local curriculum. Your input is now being sought via public consultation.
