Healthcare professionals are well placed to educate and educate the public about oral cancer – throughout the campaign and throughout the year.
Dentists, doctors, nurses, pharmacists, and health educators can all help raise awareness about oral cancer.
Here are just a few things you can do for Oral Cancer Promotion Month:
Free oral health checkups and oral cancer screenings
This is how dental practices can get involved most effectively.
Organizing a session of free oral health exams and oral cancer screenings is a perfect way for you to bring people into the office who may not have seen a dentist in years.
When you open your doors, you can have oral health exams while you have a thorough oral cancer exam. You can even get in touch with homeless centers, nursing homes, or other groups in need to see if they would like to send people to you.
It’s a great benefit to the dental office, builds your standing in the local community, and can ultimately help save lives.
Lectures and workshops
These are perfect for the dental and health care professionals, as well as oral health educators. Visit local nursing homes, community centers, or workplaces for oral cancer education.
Workshops work well because they encourage interactivity between the person leading the workshop and the participants. It’s a relaxed atmosphere that encourages questions and natural conversation – so all important questions are covered.
An eye-catching display is easy to set up and can be a great way to get people’s attention. They are also a fantastic way for people to learn more about oral cancer.
Whether you work in a dental office, hospital, college, pharmacy, community center, or office, a dazzling display is the perfect way to get involved in Oral Cancer Promotion Month.
Displays are relatively low on your time and budget, which makes them the perfect Mouth Cancer Action Month activity. They can also be customized depending on how much space you have available.
Displays can be purely decorative or can be a great source of learning material. They can brighten up a room and make it a more interesting and stimulating place. It can have a positive effect on motivation and have a direct impact on learning.
Oral Cancer Month of Action is sponsored by and in Association with the Oral Cancer Foundation.
We are proud and happy to work with both of our partners. Their dedication and passion for oral cancer education is critical to the success of our campaign.
