There were around 50 registrations for the CDE Programme which was beyond our expectations and the Karnataka State Dental Council has awarded 18 CDE points for the research workshop.
The workshop helped every participant to know the fundamentals of Health research and Health statistics, to identify a Research problem, formulate Research question, Research hypothesis, and Null hypothesis and defend. They were able to clearly formulate the objectives of a research and do literature search (basic and advanced) on a research topic using Pub med and other search engines and compile the available literature. They were also able to calculate sample size for a given research using G power soft ware and enter the dummy data into the excel sheet, import, analyze the data using SPSS and interpret the data.
At the end of the CDE Programme we received very good feedback for organizing such a programme. Most of them were happy to have gained more knowledge and take home messages. Each and every one of the delegates went home with eager minds to pen down their research works and to do further research with the skills that they had acquired in these 4 days.
The programme was a huge success, and this is a remarkable achievement for the Department of Public Health Dentistry, DSCDS, and for the DSI as a whole.
