dc.description.abstract The module was developed as an elective to give motivated senior dental students an opportunity to expand their horizons in planning oral rehabilitation. It comprised one tutor and 12 students, from five universities world-wide, communicating on the World Wide Web (WWW), to develop oral rehabilitation plans for simulated patients. Trigger material came from one of two Case Profiles and consisted of diagnostic casts and details of the clinical and radiographic examination in WWW/CD-ROM form. No background material was supplied as to the patients age, sex, history or main concern(s). Students worked in groups of three, each student from a different location. Individual students were given a role within the group: Patient, who developed a personal background belonging to the trigger examination material, Academic who identified state-of-the-art treatment options available for the dental treatment needs identified by the group and General Practitioner who tailored these options to the patients needs and wants. Student feedback focused on their perception of their experience with the program in response to a questionnaire comprising 11 structured and four open questions. All students felt that the program increased their confidence in planning oral rehabilitation.
