Data to give bite to our health system
Dr. Paul Allison of McGill University was on the CDA Oasis Good News Show recently to discuss an exciting research project for which he is Principal Investigator. You can watch this 11-minute conversation at https://vimeo.com/577354264.
The next round of the Canadian Health Measures Survey, beginning in January 2022 will have a significant oral health component which will include oral examinations, survey questions, as well as a range of physical, biological and biochemical measures of general health.
All 10 Canadian dental schools will be involved in the oral health component of the project, which is being funded by the Canadian Institutes of Health Research.
