THE IMPORTANCE OF EVIDENCE BASED GUIDELINES ANDTHE CHALLENGES OF GUIDELINE ADOPTION IN PRACTICE
Paul Brocklehurst (United Kingdom)

Learning Objectives

  • > Provide an overview of the evidence generation process
  • > Highlight common conceptual approaches to implementation
  • > Discuss the challenges to the translation of evidence in clinical practice

Abstract

Evidence-based practice is seen as the cornerstone of modern healthcare, where there is ‘explicit and judicious use of current best evidence in making decisions about the care of individual patients’. The process of generating evidence begins with randomized controlled trials due to their ability to determine causality. Any observed effect is then pooled statistically across a number of similar trials and the results then become synthesized to create evidence-based policies. The next logical step is the translation of this evidence into routine practice. However, changing clinical behavior is not straightforward, leading to calls for more sophisticated approaches to evidence translation.

GUIDELINE DEVELOPMENT - WORKSHOP CONCEPT AND PRESENTING THE ACTUAL CONCLUSIONS AND PREVENTION STRATEGIES
David Herrera (Spain)

Learning Objectives

  • > To understand the relevance of the relationship between caries and periodontal diseases
  • > To evaluate the common aetiological factors (including bacterial biofilms and risk factors) of both conditions
  • > To analyze the importance of the interactions in terms of common prevention strategies
  • > To explore the possible benefits of the developed guidelines for the ageing population

Abstract

The recent workshop “The boundaries between caries and periodontal diseases”, organized by the European Federation of Periodontology (EFP) and European Organisation for Caries Research (ORCA), aimed to evaluate the relationship between caries and periodontal diseases. Four main areas of discussion were organized: (1) the role of microbial biofilms in both conditions; (2) the influence of different factors, such as lifestyle, behaviour or systemic diseases; (3) prevention, at individual and population levels; and (4) the specific situation in the ageing population. Narrative and systematic reviews on those topics were prepared and discussed during the Workshop, aiming to develop consensus conclusions and guidelines.

FROM GUIDELINE DEVELOPMENT TO IMPLEMENTATION INTO DAILY PRACTICE
Mariano Sanz (Spain)

Learning Objectives

  • > To present the process of scientific data acquisition through both narrative and systematic reviews
  • > To discuss the method of discussion and elaboration of consensus reports by experts
  • > To discuss the method of developing guidelines for different stakeholders

Abstract

Caries and periodontal diseases are the most prevalent oral conditions and their prevention and treatment represent most of the workload of oral health professionals. A recent workshop between the EFP and ORCA reviewed the scientific boundaries between these diseases and developed consensus reports and guidelines to approach the commonalities of both. In this presentation, I will review the process and will present the most important outcomes.
