Los Angeles — Clinicians have the opportunity to earn up to 6.75 hours of CE credit March 18 at an ADA Center for Evidence-Based Dentistry symposium.
The three-hour education program, held in conjunction with the American Association for Dental Research Annual Meeting & Exhibition in Los Angeles, will help participants learn to quickly access state-of-the-art research publications available for clinical decision-making; recognize methods for interpreting research evidence and applying it to patient care; understand the challenges front-line clinicians face when trying to inform patients and their teams with scientific evidence; and learn how research findings can best be incorporated into the clinical decision-making process.
Participants will have the opportunity to join an ongoing discussion about whether the research community and other stakeholders are reaching clinicians in an effective way.  Organizers also plan to address how clinicians can use such scientific knowledge and implement it into everyday practice.
Scheduled speakers include Dr. Lindsey Robinson, ADA 13th District trustee; Dr. Alonso Carrasco-Labra, director of the ADA Center for Evidence-Based Dentistry; and Dr. Jocelyne Feine, editor of JDR Clinical & Translational Research.
Registration for the symposium, called Bridging Research Evidence and Clinical-Decision Making, includes access to poster sessions, keynote speakers and other AADR meeting programming as well as a one-year affiliate AADR membership.
