The NICE Evidence Search Champion Scheme has been operating in Bristol Dental School for the past 3 years. We are proud to take part in this national programme set up by NICE which aims to improve the routine use of evidence-based information by future healthcare professionals. Volunteer Year 2 dental students received bespoke training and support to enable them to disseminate information about NICE Evidence Search to their fellow students in structured hands-on learning sessions.
On 28th September, five of our NICE Champions travelled to NICE headquarters in London, expenses-paid. The day involved lots of interesting talks and group activities focused on NICE resources, networking with Student Champions from other institutions and staff at NICE, and a NICE lunch!
