Scholarly Activities

Position Papers, Statements & Guidelines

Welcome to CDHA’s Scholarly Activities and Scientific Study webpage! CDHA provides leadership on critical and emerging issues related to oral health and dental hygiene by enhancing access to research evidence, facilitating timely application of research to practice through knowledge translation and developing position papers and statements on a given topic. Evidence-informed resources synthesize and analyze the available evidence on a given topic and develop recommendations to inform policy, programming and dental hygiene practice.

Examples of scientific self-study activities may include:

  • Reading dental, dental hygiene and/or medical peer reviewed journals
  • Reading CDHA position papers, statements and/or guidelines
  • Reading dental or dental hygiene peer reviewed textbooks
  • Reading medical advisories and factsheets published by a provincial/territorial regulatory body (i.e., CDHO Knowledge Network)
  • Reading a CJDH Between The Lines video interview article

Many provincial/territorial dental hygiene regulatory authorities provide CE credit for self-study activities of a scientific nature. Please consult your regulatory college and continuing competency program requirements for more information.
