About our research
Systematic reviews and evidence based clinical guidelines are recognised for their ability to inform rational decision-making in healthcare policy. An understanding of how to implement them in practice is becoming mandatory for all healthcare professionals.
We have a strong reputation for the delivery of high quality systematic reviews, predominantly through our support of the Cochrane Oral Health Review Group (COHG). In addition to conducting systematic reviews, researchers in this area investigate aspects of clinical trial and systematic review methodology, and are involved in the development of national and international evidence-based guidelines.
Current research interests include:
- systematic reviews of the effectiveness of interventions for the prevention, treatment and rehabilitation of oral, dental and craniofacial diseases and disorders;
- systematic reviews of diagnostic test accuracy studies in the field of oral cancer;
- systematic reviews of non-randomized studies;
- development of evidence based guidelines;
- direct and indirect comparisons;
- quality of RCTs, systematic reviews and guidelines;
- reporting quality;
- core outcome sets.
