The #MeToo movement exposes sexual abuse and harassment issues across populations and industries. Within dental education, student clinicians may be subjected to unwanted sexual advances, violence and/or discriminatory behavior from patients based on sex, gender, race, religion or ethnicity. While the extent of the issue in dental education requires further investigation, a recent survey to dental hygiene and dental students across the United States and Canada does provide some valuable insights.
Join us for this free webinar as the presenters discuss the results of the survey and ways that individuals can identify inappropriate situations and provide effective intervention for students.
Note: This presentation was originally featured at the 2019 ADEA Annual Session & Exhibition.
