The Translation Research in a Dental Setting (TRiaDS) Programme operates as part of the Clinical Effectiveness Workstream, within NHS Education for Scotland‘s Dental Directorate, to support the translation of knowledge into practice. TRiaDS is a multidisciplinary research collaboration embedded within the Scottish Dental Clinical Effectiveness Programme (SDCEP) guidance development process.  TRiaDS aims to develop and evaluate the implementation of strategies to improve the knowledge-to-practice gap in primary care dentistry in Scotland.

To develop and test interventions to enhance the translation of guidance recommendations into practice, TRiaDS works in partnership with the other four Clinical Effectiveness Workstream programmes: SDCEP; the Scottish Dental Practice Based Research Network (SDPBRN); the Quality Improvement in Practice Training (QIiPT) team; and the Scottish Dental Postgraduate Fellowship (SDPF).

Drawing on experience gained in applying this approach within dental practice, the TRiaDS methodology is now being applied within optometry and pharmacy.
