CJDH Research Award
The Canadian Journal of Dental Hygiene (CJDH) Research Award celebrates outstanding scholarship and the important role of Canadian dental hygiene research in building the knowledge base and guiding the practice of the dental hygiene profession. This annual award is given in two categories: the best original research article and the best literature review published in the journal in the previous volume year. All eligible articles are evaluated by a panel of three experts selected by the journal’s scientific editor. The winning authors and articles are announced formally in the October issue of CJDH, and the awards are presented at the Canadian Dental Hygienists Association’s biennial national conference.
The winners of the 2021 CJDH Research Award for best original research article are Iris Feng, Mario Brondani, Christophe Bedos, and Leeann Donnelly for their article, “Access to oral health care for people living with HIV/AIDS attending a community-based program,” published in the February 2020 issue of the journal (Can J Dent Hyg 2020;54(1):7–15).
The winners of the 2021 CJDH Research Award for best literature review Teresa La Chimea, Zul Kanji, and Susan Schmitz for their article, “Assessment of clinical competence in competency-based education,” published in the June 2020 issue of the journal (Can J Dent Hyg 2020;54(2):83–91).
