In 2017 the National Institute for Health (NIHR) Clinical Research Network (CRN) Oral and Dental Health Specialty Group in collaboration with the Dental Schools Council and Public Health England, launched an initiative to identify unanswered questions relating to oral and dental health research from a patient, public and clinical perspective. In December 2018, the Top 10 research priorities for Oral and Dental Research were announced.
Answering these questions will need a network of dental professionals to carry out the research so the NIHR CRN Oral and Dental Specialty Group is conducting a short survey to:
- Identify Dentists and Dental Care Professionals interested in taking part in research
- Describe their practice characteristics and readiness to take part
This initiative has been strongly endorsed by the Chief Dental Officers of the four UK home nations, the Faculty of General Dental Practitioners, Dental Schools Council and the British Society for Oral and Dental Research.
If you have any questions about the survey or have problems accessing the link to the form please contact:-
Shamaila Anwar (NHR Specialty Cluster Manager for Oral and Dental Health) at firstname.lastname@example.org.
The survey will close on the 28th Feb 2019.
