Klinisk slutexamination i tandhygienistprogrammet vid fyra lärosäten
The registered dental hygienist has a key role in promotion and prevention within Swedish dental care. Working as a dental hygienist requires an ability to work independently and make well-grounded decisions in order to give good and sure care. The aim of the project was to develop, test and evaluate a model for clinical final examinations based on the requirements for working as a registered dental hygienist. The project resulted in a model consisting of a theoretical and a clinical examination. The theoretical part consists of a fictitious patient case while the clinical part comprises a realistic patient situation in which the student takes charge of a patient and gives treatment. The strength of the new model lies in the fact that all students at different universities and colleges have to take clinical examinations according to the same assessment criteria, which ensures good and comparable quality.
