Research output: Contribution to journalArticlepeer-review


The 'Family Study' was introduced at Cardiff Dental School in the 2001/2 session. Students are paired with local families who they visit over three years to collect information about family structure, childhood development and health behaviours, which forms the basis of a major project in year 4. In this paper, data gained from the first cohort of students to complete the study are reviewed, together with a practical evaluation of the programme's delivery and teaching gains. © British Dental Journal 2007.
