We examine the links and the potential for sharing of best practice between these areas and have expertise in service improvement, evaluation, needs assessment, service user involvement, participation and innovation. The centre’s research into health and wellbeing disciplines has been judged to be among the best in the world according to the 2008 Research Assessment Exercise. 75% of the research activity in social policy at the University of Bolton (which includes health, physical activity and social history) was judged to be of international standard or better – with a proportion of research activity in this field judged to be world-leading, in terms of quality, significance and rigour. Research topics Here's a sample of our current and recent research projects and collaborations. Experience-based design collaboration with Bolton PCT’s Orthopaedic Clinical Assessment and Treatment Services (CATS): in this project we are working with Bolton’s Orthopaedic CATS service to develop and pilot a participatory, arts-based methodology which will enable the service to capture patients’ experiences. Barrow Community Gym: we worked with service users, service providers and other stakeholders to develop an evaluation tool for a community-based gym for people with mental health problems User involvement in service delivery and design, The RLC Surgery, Radcliffe: we have undertaken pilot work to scope a methodology for involving patients in the development of services which the surgery provides. Working with users, GPs, nurses and other practice staff, we have designed a research protocol which has been submitted as a research proposal to the Research for Patient Benefit funding scheme. Greater Manchester Public Health Practice Unit – research engagement with hard-to-reach groups for health improvement: we have been involved in discussions and pilot work around proposed programmes of research which link experiential knowledge with interventions that have an impact on reducing health inequalities and improving health outcomes in vulnerable groups.

Restorative and prosthodontics treatment must always be considered, planned and performed in the context of total patient care with respect to both general and oral health. The program outcome will graduate a critically thinking clinician who is ethical, socially aware and capable of delivering high quality restorative and prosthodontics services to a socio-economically diverse population of patients. [+]

Top Masters in Middle East 2017. Prosthodontics and/or restorative dentistry are recognized specialties within dentistry and there is strong demand in the marketplace for restorative dentists and prosthodontics in the United Arab Emirates. Restorative & Prosthodontics program graduates are recognized for their ability to manage oral conditions, diseases, and pathologies complicated by multi-disciplinary concerns for healthy and special needs patients. There is strong need for well trained specialists in the UAE in order to provide comprehensive oral rehabilitative services. As UAE continues to increase in population and as the population ages, the demand for dentists with comprehensive and advanced restorative and prosthodontic skills and abilities will increase. Dentists with advanced training in restorative and prosthodontics work in collaboration with other dentists. As such, these specialists are an integral part of the dental health care professional community and infrastructure of out-service health service delivery facilities. The Master of Science degree in Restorative & Prosthodontists program provides learners with advanced training from both clinical and research perspectives. The course content of the curriculum is designed to be a major part of the overall oral care of patients. Emphasis is given to retaining and preserving the dentition and maintaining the overall health of the teeth, periodontium, soft tissue, oral and facial muscles, TMJ and other head and neck tissues, as opposed to removal and replacement with artificial appliances. But when removal and replacement is necessary, the specialists graduated from the Restorative & Prosthodontists program will demonstrate advanced skills in this oral rehabilitation. The Master degree curriculum courses provide experiences and an in-depth understanding into the following subjects relative to the restorative and prosthodontists patient: (a) diagnosis of oral and dental disease, pathology, and conditions, (b) restorative treatment of disease, pathology, and conditions, and (c) prosthodontic restoration of oral and dental disease, pathology, and conditions and replacement of missing teeth as needed including placement and use of dental implants for restoration. The Master degree learner in the Restorative & Prosthodontists program will not graduate until he/she completes 90 credit hours, and all credit hours are required. [-]
