What matters most to you, when it comes to your oral health? Consumer Validation Survey: Australia

The International Consortium for Health Outcomes  Measurement (ICHOM) (www.ichom.org) is an international non-profit organisation that unites healthcare providers, policymakers, and patients to improve health care worldwide. ICHOM, with the support of Dental Health Services Victoria (DHSV) (https://www.dhsv.org.au/) and the Hospital Contribution Fund (HCF), as well as in partnership with the World Dental Federation (FDI) (www.fdiworlddental.org), is developing a new standardised set of oral health measurement questions that will be asked of consumers and their dentists in order to evaluate and monitor common oral health conditions like cavities and gum disease.

As an oral health consumer, we would really like to know what you think about our proposed list of oral health measurement questions. Do you think we have captured all the things that are most important to consumers when it comes to their oral health? Can you help us perfect the questions so that they can be better understood by consumers, and/or better address their main oral health concerns? Feedback from consumers like you is important to help us modify and improve the suggested list of oral health measurement questions before they are released for collection in clinics both within Australia and throughout the world as part of an effort to help understand and improve oral health for everyone.

Please help us understand what matters most to consumers like you when it comes to oral health by participating in the following survey:
