Abstract

Objective: We hypothesize that viewing educational presentation with video will provide pediatric medicine residents with instructive information on infant oral health. Therefore, the aim of this study was to evaluate an infant oral health education program targeting University of Nebraska Medical Center (UNMC) pediatric medicine residents.Methods: Assessment of 32 pediatric medicine residents in the form of a questionnaire was completed immediately before and after a 60 minute educational intervention. The intervention was in the form of a PowerPoint presentation and video of infant oral health for health care providers. The 16-questions (True/false/don't know or multiple choice) questionnaire was based on the information presented in the lecture and video. Results: There was a significant difference between the pre-test and post-test scores (p-value <0.001). The mean score on the pre-test was 10.09 out of 16 (63%) and the mean score on the post-test was 13.3 out of 16 (83%). There was no significant correlation between age, gender, or year of residency training with pre or post-test scores. Twenty-five (78.1%) reported themselves "very likely" to use the information. Conclusions: A one hour Power Point and video educational intervention was effective in teaching pediatric medicine residents basic information on infant oral health.
