Evidence-Base Practice

Knowledge, Attitude, and Behavior of Dental Students

This research will utilize a validated instrument (Hendricson WD, Rugh JD, Hatch JP, Stark DL, Deahl T, Wallmann ER. Validation of an instrument to assess evidence-based practice knowledge, attitudes, access, and confidence in the dental environment. J Dent Educ 2011; 75(2):131-44.) to assess the knowledge, skills, perceptions, and behavior of dental students in their final year of the pre-doctoral curriculum at several U.S. dental schools. This study will help faculty teaching in pre-doctoral programs and curriculum leaders in dental institutions to gain insight regarding the knowledge, skills, perceptions and behavior of dental students with respect to evidence-based practice. This insight will provide a feedback loop to inform curricular efforts to improve learning outcomes.
