Title:

Involving children and young people in dental care, service evaluations and research

Summary:

Over the past 30 years the right of children have been increasingly recognised (James et al. 1998). The United Nations Convention on the Rights of the Child (UNCRC) was adopted in 1990 to recognise children’s rights to express their views. As more weight has been given to the rights and views of children, the ‘voices’ of children have become increasingly recognised and taken seriously (Mayall 1996). In healthcare there have been many international and national policies recognising these right. For example, the Council of Europe’s ‘Guidelines on Child-Friendly Health’ advocates children’s rights to healthcare, but also stresses the need to respect and protect children’s rights in healthcare (2). The UK Department of Health has placed increasing emphasis on giving children and their parents more information, power and choice over the treatment they receive and involving them more actively in planning their care (3, 4). These policies place the onus on health services including dental services and clinicians to ensure that children and young people’s perspectives about the treatments they are offered and their views on the outcomes of their treatments are heard and acted upon.
This talk will cover the benefits, methods and challenges of involving children and young people in dental care and research.

Aims:

To describe and discuss ways to involve young people in dental care, service evaluations and research.

Objectives:

  • To describe the benefits of involving young people
  • To discuss appropriate methods with examples of how such methods have been used successfully.
  • To highlight the challenges which need to be considered when involving young people in dental care, service evaluations and research.
