PA-111 - Humanities and Social and Behavioral Science in Dental Education—Short Talks
Sunday, March 15, 2020
3:30 PM – 4:30 PM
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, such as teaching and assessment of communication skills, empathy, cultural awareness, professionalism, emotional intelligence, social-emotional learning and mindfulness. These are important to dentistry because successful practice and dental treatment is dependent on attitudes and behaviors of patients and providers as well as 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 and person-centered care.
