Zero Invasion Dentistry (2017)$20,000
Description
This project will manage tooth decay of baby teeth in young (0-8 years) children using silver diamine fluoride, an antimicrobial liquid that can be brushed on to cavities quickly and easily to painlessly and noninvasively stop the spread of cavities and even prevent tooth decay. This project aims to determine, over a 12 month period, the relative tooth decay arrest and prevention abilities on the baby teeth of children aged eight years or less of a once-only treatment of:5% Sodium fluoride varnish (NaF), and38% silver diamine fluoride (SDF) /potassium iodide (PI) /resin modified glass ionomer fissure sealant (a flowing sealant over the cavity) - called Zero Invasion Dentistry.

An innovative tele-assistance system to support education in clinical procedures (2014)$33,150
Description
Access to sound expertise and guidance to perform clinical procedures is often lacking, especially in more rural and isolated areas. In the absence of direct supervision, practitioners and students can feel underprepared and lack the skills and confidence to perform many procedures. This project aims to improve the situation by making remote expertise and guidance more accessible. The project will trial the application of cutting-edge technology, a wearable tele-assistance system that will allow novices to undertake procedures with real-time audio and visual guidance provided by a supervisor at a distant location. This technology enables the instructors helping hands to be visually projected onto site (a patients wound for example) and allow the novice to shadow the instructors movements throughout the procedure (if necessary) or allow the instructor to step-in should an incorrect action be initiated. Key outcomes will be: 1) a working remote training and guidance system; and 2) a report on the feasibility of the technology, its benefit and impact.

The aims of the project are, at the behest of the Tasmanian Aboriginal Centre (TAC) to: collaboratively develop, trial and evaluate Virtual orientation Tours of three Aboriginal Health Services in Tasmania. Methodology: An action research approach will be adopted to guide the collaborative development, trialing and evaluation of the Virtual Tours of three Aboriginal Health Services. The outcomes will be three virtual orientation tours hosted online via the Tasmanian Clinical Education Network (TCEN) and TAC websites with links to other areas of the TAC website that the TAC considers appropriate for increasing students cultural awareness and competence. These virtual orientations will prepare students for professional experience placements in Aboriginal Health services in a way that is timely and cost-effective for students and placement providers, alleviates reality shock, increases students understanding of the local culture, nature of the services and learning opportunities available and what will be expected of them. In addition to preparing students for placement in Aboriginal Health, these Virtual orientation programs will be accessible to all health professional students via the TCEN website and potentially other students and prospective employees via the TAC website and thus help to address the identified need to expose more health professionals and students to Aboriginal Health issues and Aboriginal Health Services (Australian Government Mason Review, 2012; Closing the Gap; 2008-14; TCEN 2014-15).
