Using Research for Clinical Decision-Making: Elements of a Research Paper


This course describes the parts of a research paper and the information that should be contained within each section. This will guide practitioners in their review of research articles so that they can identify the specific research questions/hypotheses being explored and what was discovered about them. These skills will help oral health professionals decide whether or not to incorporate these research findings into their patient therapy and practice procedures.
