Scotland - A joint venture by two National Health Service groups (NHS Tayside and NHS Education for Scotland) and the University of Dundee, has resulted in a new Postgraduate Education Centre at Dundee Dental Hospital and School. One aim, said Penny Crowe, Postgraduate Education Centre Manager, was to train dental surgeons in a state of the art, flagship centre.
Among advanced developments, Sony Professional Services design consultants designed and installed audio-visual (AV) IT systems in a lecture theatre and two seminar rooms. This equipment includes projectors, built-in ceiling speakers, induction loops for those with hearing impairment, a visualiser (showing a magnified image of items placed on it), and video-conferencing facilities.
Live demonstrations on model ‘dummy’ heads in the Centre’s Clinical Skills Laboratory are transmitted via a link direct to the lecture theatre, enabling the training of a wider audience.
