Short Talk-90 Minute Seminar
Educational Programs, Workshops, Seminars, New Idea Session, and Small Group Discussions
This exploration of humanities and social and behavioral science in dental education provides each speaker five minutes to summarize an element of these topics at their institutions—teaching and assessment of communication skills, empathy, cultural awareness, professionalism, emotional intelligence, social emotional learning, mindfulness. These are important to dentistry because successful practice and dental treatment is dependent on attitudes and behaviors of patients and providers, and their communications and other interactions. These short presentations will enable participants to share ideas and innovations, foster collaboration and encourage joint projects among institutions for advancing holistic, compassionate, person-centered care.
