Abstract [en]

OBJECTIVE: The primary purpose of this study was to assess the cost-effectiveness of caries preventive interventions.

MATERIAL AND METHODS: A systematic review was conducted, following the PRISMA Statement. Four electronic databases were searched (final search 16 March 2020). Studies fulfilling the inclusion criteria were independently critically appraised, by two reviewers in parallel. Data from each included study were extracted and tabulated: the analysis used a narrative approach to present the results of the estimated cost-effectiveness.

RESULTS AND CONCLUSIONS: Twenty-six publications fulfilled the inclusion criteria and were of low or moderate risk of bias. Ten publications were economic evaluations, directly based on empirical studies, and the other 16 were modelling studies. Most of the studies concerned interventions for children and the most common were analyses of fluoride varnish and risk-based programs. Some of the studies showed both reduced cost and improved outcomes, but most studies reported that the improved outcome came with an additional cost. The results disclosed several cost-effectiveness evaluations of caries preventive interventions in the literature, but these target primarily children at high risk. There is a scarcity of studies specifically targeting adults and especially the elderly.

Abstract [en]

Background There is an uncertainty regarding how to optimally prevent and/or reduce pain after dental treatment on children and adolescents. Aim To conduct a systematic review (SR) and health technology assessment (HTA) of oral analgesics administered after dental treatment to prevent postoperative pain in children and adolescents aged 3-19 years. Design A PICO-protocol was constructed and registered in PROSPERO (CRD42017075589). Searches were conducted in PubMed, Cochrane, Scopus, Cinahl, and EMBASE, November 2018. The researchers (reading in pairs) assessed identified studies independently, according to the defined inclusion and exclusion criteria, following the PRISMA-statement. Results 3,963 scientific papers were identified, whereof 216 read in full text. None met the inclusion criteria, leading to an empty SR. Ethical issues were identified related to the recognized knowledge gap in terms of challenges to conduct studies that are well-designed from methodological as well as ethical perspectives. Conclusions There is no scientific support for the use or rejection of oral analgesics administered after dental treatment in order to prevent or reduce postoperative pain in children and adolescents. Thus, no guidelines can be formulated on this issue based solely on scientific evidence. Well-designed studies on how to prevent pain from developing after dental treatment in children and adolescents is urgently needed.

Abstract [en]

PURPOSE: To evaluate the evidence supporting effects and adverse effects of local analgesia using different pharmacological agents and injection techniques during dental treatment in children and adolescents aged 3-19 years. METHODS: A systematic literature search of databases including PubMed, Cochrane, and Scopus was conducted in November 2016. The PRISMA-statement was followed. Two review authors independently assessed the selected randomised control trials for risk of bias and quality. RESULTS: 725 scientific papers were identified. 89 papers were identified to be read in full text of which 80 were excluded. Finally, 9 papers were evaluated for quality and risk of bias. Many of the included papers had methodological shortcomings affecting the possibility to draw conclusions. Information about ethical clearance and consent were missing in some of the included papers. No alarming adverse effects were identified. One study was assessed as having low risk of bias. This reported inferior alveolar nerve block to be more effective than buccal infiltration for dental treatment of mandibular molars, while no differences were found regarding pharmacological agents. CONCLUSIONS: At present, there is insufficient evidence in support of any pharmacologic agent or injection technique as being superior compared to others. There is a need for more rigorous studies which also handle the ethical issues of including children in potentially painful studies.

Abstract [sv]

Syftet med detta rundabordssamtal är att utbyta erfarenheter och diskutera hur olika stöd till doktoranders lärande samverkar under forskarutbildningens gång. Vilka pedagogiska utmaningar finns i att möta doktoranderna som individer i sitt avhandlingsprojekt men också i den större kontexten bestående av forskningsmiljön, disciplinen och doktorandkollektivet?

Abstract [sv]

Denna rapport redogör för ett pedagogiskt utvecklingsprojekt som biblioteket på Malmö högskola genomfört under 2014 om studenter som medskapare av undervisning i informationssökning. Projektet har tilldelats pedagogiska utvecklingsmedel från utbildningsberedningen. Syftet med projektet har varit att utveckla metoder för att ta tillvara studenternas erfarenheter och tidigare kunskaper för att stödja deras informationssökning. Vi har velat undersöka på vilka sätt studenterna aktivt kan involveras i undervisningen genom att titta på olika former av brukarinvolvering. Utgångspunkten har varit att ökad delaktighet leder till en djupare förståelse hos studenterna för sitt eget lärande, men också en ökad insikt hos undervisande bibliotekarier för studenternas kontext. En av slutsatserna är att för att lyckas med studentinvolvering krävs en deltagarkultur där det faktiskt är möjligt att påverka. Brukarinvolvering handlar inte bara om metoder, utan det handlar även om att alla inblandade har en inställning som stödjer ökad studentdelaktighet.

Abstract [en]

Letting students take an active part in their education is vital in higher education and there is a lot of research showing that students who are active learners also learn more effectively (eg Biggs & Tang 2011). This poster will illustrate a project where Malmö university library wanted to examine what student activity could mean in the context of information seeking, and where we wanted to involve students more actively in the design of the teaching activities. The project is called ”Students as co-creators of education in seeking, collecting and valuing information – development of methods for higher student participation” and goes on during 2014. We want to see in what ways students can be actively involved in teaching in order to create a deeper understanding within students for their role in their own learning - how can the experiences and knowledge of students contribute to their skills in relation to searching, collecting and valuing information? Within the project we have read articles on user involvement, discussed the literature we have read and we have also visited other organizations that work actively with user participation in order to learn more about different methods that can be used. Inspiration to the methods come from different areas, such as interaction design, city planning and public libraries. In this poster we will tell about our experiences from the project and the different methods we have tested (eg ”idea workshop”), the results we have got and how they influence our teaching about information literacy. The poster will also highlight our experiences from having students in the project group and how this has affected the way we work. Biggs, John B. & Tang, Catherine So-Kum (2011).

Abstract [sv]

Ett övergripande problem med utvärdering av informations/biblioteksverksamhet är att det fortfarande nästan enbart är traditionella uppgifter som utvärderas. En annan aspekt är att mäta kvalitet och nytta i andra än ekonomiska termer – d.v.s. kvalitativa indikatorer och mått. Denna rapport innehåller en inventering (ej bedömning) vilka metoder, ansatser och initiativ som idag finns eller håller på att utvecklas på lärosätena/biblioteken för att mäta kvalitet på icke-kvantitativa sätt.
