Volunteering with JCDA-OASIS to Advance the Profession

#1 von carlos , 04.06.2013 23:39

In late 2011, Dr. John O’Keefe, director of Knowledge Networks, called for volunteers to participate in the JCDA-OASIS project. The initial request was for help distilling clinical information into templates that would be integrated in the JCDA-OASIS electronic platform. We are condensing critical clinical information into “1-, 2-, or 3-minute consults” (depending on the category) that can be quickly retrieved and easily understood. The consults will assist dentists in their everyday practice.

We have been pleasantly surprised to have a number of dentists from Canada and around the world enthusiastically respond to our call for support in this endeavour. However, we continuously seek volunteers to develop additional clinical information packages.

We are looking for individual and groups of dentists, specialists, general physicians, predental students, and people with a background in basic sciences or life sciences to be part of this exciting project. You can contribute valuable knowledge to the dental profession while enjoying a learning experience that mirrors knowledge gathering in clinical practice.

Here are examples of the categories where we are seeking volunteers. In addition, sample templates are included to show the type of information packets we are creating.

Document Translation

In Phase 1 of JCDA-OASIS, clinical information will be presented exclusively in English. However, we would like to provide a bilingual decision support service. As such, we are seeking volunteers to help translate our templates and documents into French. If you are interested in helping in this area, please contact us.

Multimedia Presentation

We plan to include multiple media formats in the next phases of the JCDA-OASIS project. If you are experienced in producing audio, video, or other media products and would like to be part of our project, please contact us to explore exciting opportunities for collaboration.

If you would like to participate in the JCDA-OASIS project, or send your suggestions, questions, or feedback, please contact:
