BASCD summer scientific meeting announced
The British Association for the Study of Community Dentistry (BASCD) has organised a summer scientific meeting in Glasgow on 9–10 June 2022, their first in-person meeting since 2019.
The conference theme is ‘Build Back Better: Inclusion, Integration and Innovation’. To help set the scene, there is a keynote address from Professor Maggie Rae, President of the Faculty of Public Health (FPH). BASCD is now in partnership with FPH and acts as the special interest group for oral health.
Last November, Glasgow became the UK’s first city to achieve EarthCheck Benchmarked Community status, with the aim of delivering higher standards of health and hygiene in a COVID-19 recovery environment.
This year is the 50th anniversary of FPH, and BASCD has arranged a special celebration during the presidential dinner at the Merchants House. The social programme includes a bagpiper, highland dancing, Chinese dancing, and a ceilidh.
During the conference, there will be two poster prize competitions (£200 each). Closing date for abstracts submission is 9am on Wednesday 20 April 2022.
CPD allowance has been approved by NHS Education for Scotland. General dental practitioners in Scotland, whose NHS earnings bear 90 per cent or more to the total earnings, are able to claim the following CPD allowance:
Thursday 9 June 2022 – 1 session (£231.10)
