Implementation of the Evidence-Based Paediatric Caries Management Strategies in Latvian Clinical Practice - an Evidence Transfer Study

Project Details


This project aims to promote evidence transfer of effective non-invasive and minimally invasive caries management strategies in paediatric dentistry in Latvia. We will carry out three different studies, including dental team members’ attitudes and parents’ views on evidence-based caries management and a prospective economic evaluation of minimally invasive caries treatment methods compared with traditional intervention. Scientific results will be used to inform decision-making bodies, facilitate behaviour change and enable the implementation of evidence-based paediatric dental care in Latvia.
The project consists of six complementary work packages (WP), three of them can be considered a single project on its own, which altogether will assure the evidence transfer step of the JBI Model (jbi-approach-to-EBHC-Our Approach):
1) WP2 - Parents’ views on non-invasive and minimally invasive caries management strategies - a qualitative study;
2) WP3 - Dental team specialists’ views on non-invasive and minimally invasive caries management strategies - a qualitative study;
3) WP4 - Economic evaluation of evidence-based caries treatment strategies compared to traditional approach - a prospective economic evaluation study.
