This subject forms the capstone for the community oral health strand of the course and introduces students to research and advanced topics in community oral health. Students will investigate the ways in which evidence is generated from research and how it is used to inform current oral health practice, in doing so they will gain an understanding of different research methodologies and associated data analysis techniques particularly as they apply to public health. Students will also cover advanced concepts of public health and the role of oral health therapist within public health and their contribution to improved community health outcomes. Students will develop advanced knowledge in models of health behaviour, cultural competency and how this can be applied in clinical and community settings. This subject will also cover transition to practice and how graduates can act as advocates for individuals and communities.
