Abstract :

Objective In this Data note, we provide a raw data set in the form of brief self-guided reflections. We also present the methodological approach to generate these reflections including an educational vignette so that other dental schools can plan for their teaching activities involving mental health and substance use topics. Data description Between 2015/16 and 2018/19, the University of British Columbia's (UBC) undergraduate dental and dental hygiene students submitted optional written guided reflections to address 'how can an educational vignette, depicting a patient with a history of substance use and mental health disorders accessing dental care, promote an open dialogue about stigma?' From a total of 323 undergraduate students, 148 anonymous reflections between 200 and 400 characters each were received. The main ideas that may emerge from the reflections include 'exploring power relations' and 'patient-centered care approach to counteract stigma'. Keywords: Secondary data analysis, Reflections, Substance use, Mental health disorders, Undergraduate education, Vignette
