Can you help with a research study on providing brief and simple diet advice to patients?

Dr Melanie Hayes, of the University of Melbourne Dental School, is seeking dental practitioners to take part in a study on improving current clinical practice in the area of diet and nutrition. Participants would receive online training in a simple diet assessment tool and nutritional counselling, and then use this approach with patients in practice. The online module should take no more than 30 minutes to complete, and then this brief intervention will be used with patients during April-May in 2015.
The results will aim to improve current practices and contribute much-needed information to the under researched evidence base for the role of dietary analysis and nutritional counselling in reducing caries risk in the community.  Can you assist with this study, or would you like more information? If so, please contact Dr. Hayes at melanie.hayes@unimelb.edu.au
