Hear this: audio education


Check out our Australian College of Pharmacy audio CPD education modules

Our latest audio CPD module on ‘Medicines in Dental Care’ is now available on the education section of the AJP website

In the presentation, Dr Brett MacFarlane talks with Dr Geraldine Moses about her role as the consultant pharmacist to the Australian Dental Association. They discuss the role of pharmacists in helping people of all ages care for their teeth.

The total length of the audio CPD is approximately 50 minutes. It has been divided into two audio files – Parts 1 and 2.

Part 1 covers dental care in younger Australians focusing on the prevention of dental caries with fluoride and treating the pain of teething. Part 2 covers the dental care of adults and older people, antibiotic prophylaxis and the common medicines implicated in problems with the teeth and jaw.

You need to listen to all of the discussion to be able to answer the assessment questions, published in the AJP, July 2016, on page 77.

This is the latest in our ‘Hear This’ series of audio file CPD accredited education modules.

We recognise that pharmacists are busy people who like to multitask. This audio presentation recognises there are different types of learners including those whose preferred learning mode is auditory.

Auditory learning is a learning style in which a person learns by hearing, listening and verbalising. Auditory learners prefer patterned sounds and words. If you are an auditory learner you understand and remember things you have heard. You store information by the way it sounds, and you have an easier time understanding spoken instructions than written ones.

This delivery method is great for busy and time poor pharmacists. You can download the audio file and listen to it as you travel to work, while you exercise or while you relax on the couch.

You will need to be registered for our website to access this module.
