Sikeston OHCAP Case Study Workshop 5-4-15

Healthcare isn’t just about diagnosing the problem – it is also about communication, education, and change.  On Monday, May 4, 2015, OHCAP students participated in a problem based learning case study.  In the given scenario, the students assumed the role of a dental hygienist.  They met with their patient and gave them an intraoral exam.  Working in groups, students then created a plan of care consisting of lifestyle modification and behavior change recommendations in order to improve their patient’s next visit to the dentist.  Once all groups made their presentations, students spent the remainder of their class time playing health care charades!
