Oral Cancer Learning Hub

Oral health professionals have a vital role in oral cancer prevention and screening.

The Oral Cancer Learning Hub will enhance your ability to identify people at risk, detect cancers of the oral cavity and oropharynx early and refer appropriately.

The Oral Cancer Learning Hub offers:

  • Risk and prevention information
  • Visual guide to identifying lesions
  • Examination resources
  • Referral guidance
  • Clinical case studies
  • 3 scientific CPD points for reviewing content and completing the quiz.

The Oral Cancer CPD quiz aims to enhance oral health practitioners’ knowledge, skills and confidence to have discussions with patients about risk factors, identify potentially malignant oral lesions or lumps and refer to specialists for diagnosis and further care. 

The Oral Cancer Screening and Prevention Program is funded by the Victorian Department of Health as an initiative under the current Victorian Cancer Plan. The plan identified that oral cancer has a relatively low survival rate, with the need to increase prevention, screening and early detection to ultimately reduce the impact on Victorians at higher risk of the disease.

The program is led by Dental Health Services Victoria, in partnership with the University of Melbourne Dental School, the Australian Dental Association Victorian Branch, La Trobe University Department of Dentistry and the Department of Health.
