Centre for Applied Oral Health Research and EvaluationPRINT PAGE
Dental Health Services Victoria (DHSV) is committed to participating in oral health research to improve the health of all Victorians.
In 2011 DHSV established the Centre for Applied Oral Health Research (CAOHR).
The goal is to establish major research and development programs that align with the needs of the community and public oral health sector in the areas of population health, health services research and workforce development. This will include:
- reviewing the evidence
- generating new evidence
- translation and dissemination of evidence and research findings to inform DHSV programs, policies, service delivery, operations and advocacy
- monitoring and evaluation
The purpose of research governance is to ensure research integrity through accountability, transparency and responsibility. Good governance also ensures that research is carried out with the highest scientific and ethical standards, appropriate use of finances, and robust monitoring, review and evaluation processes.
