Oral cancer is on the rise in Victoria, but early detection can save lives. Explore the new Oral Cancer Learning Hub for Victorian oral health professionals and enhance your knowledge, confidence and skills.
In an average week, 16 Victorians are diagnosed with oral cancer, including cancers of the oral cavity and oropharynx. Oral cancer is often diagnosed late, resulting in ineffective treatment and poor prognosis. The Victorian Oral Cancer Screening & Prevention Program supports Victorian oral health professionals to prevent, detect and refer oral cancer.
The Oral Cancer Learning Hub has evidence-based information, practical resources, patient case studies and a CPD quiz with a personalised learning plan. It will enhance your confidence, knowledge and skills in:
- Oral cancer risk and prevention
- Oral mucosal examination
- Recognising suspicious lesions
- Record keeping and referral
Plus, you can record 3 scientific CPD points for reading the website and completing the quiz.
