Methological Issues in Oral Health Research
Addressing the complexities in analyzing oral health data
In 2014 the meeting moved to the other part of the world, namely to Adelaide in Australia. The Australian Research Centre for Population Oral Health (ARCPOH), University of Adelaide, sponsored and hosted the sixth edition of the meeting with a focus on Addressing the complexities in analyzing oral health data. Colgate and the Australian Dental Association provided additional sponsorship and supported research awards for best abstract, poster presentation and oral presentation.
Other sponsored awards were best abstract by an ARCPOH researcher and the Dr James Robertson AM Award for best abstract by a Vietnamese postgraduate student. Over 80 representatives from 35 organizations and 18 countries worldwide attended the conference. Prior to this meeting, a full-day pre-conference workshop was organized dealing with different challenges encountered in oral health research. The post-conference workshop was entitled “Multilevel analysis: Methodological aspects and application to dental epidemiology” and was led by José Leopoldo Ferreira Antunes from the University of São Paulo, Brazil. The pre- and post-conference workshop attracted 35-40 participants each.
