Oral Potentially Malignant Disorders | Healthcare Professional Training
Oral Potentially Malignant Disorders, abbreviated to OPMDs, encompass a wide number of oral mucosal disorders that have the potential malignant transformation, i.e. transformation into oral cancer. Many of the disorders are quite common, such as Oral Lichen Planus. The aim of this e-learning platform is to improve knowledge in the diagnosis and management of OPMDs amongst health care professionals. Dentists and other health care professionals are well positioned to detect OPMDs and arrange referral to secondary or tertiary care if required. This e-learning platform has been developed by partner universities across Europe, under the coordination of King’s College London and has been funded by the European Union.
This e-learning platform has been categorised by each of the OPMDs and also includes a self-assessment to test your knowledge, as well as an atlas of photographs of the typical OPMD presentation. We hope you enjoy using this platform and your feedback is welcome, please use the feedback link on the homepage.
