Situation analysis and typology of oral health coverage and financing in Europe

Find our published working paper on deliverable D2.2 of task T2.3 in WP2 - Situation analysis and typology of oral health coverage and financing in Europe. In this work  we perform a situation analysis by mapping the current coverage situation and funding mechanisms of OH care in European countries. The final work will result in a typology for OH financing and identify market failures, as a baseline for policy recommendations. Our methods and preliminary results can be found in our working paper.

Radboud UMC PhD retreat in Den Bosch

During the Radboudumc PhD retreat that took place on the 2nd and 3rd of November in Den Bosch, the Netherlands, Jip Janssen and Ziade Sarroukh had the opportunity to present their poster on an upcoming study they are preparing together with Stefan Listl, as part of the PRUDENT Project.
 
The team plans to evaluate the effects of introducing a new provider payment model which blends capitation, meaning that dental practices receive a fixed monthly tariff per patient, with SES-risk-adjusted bonus payments among children and adolescents aged <18 years in the Netherlands. The overall aim is to improve prevention in oral healthcare among children.

PRUDENT Study Protocol

The PRUDENT study protocol was successfully published in JDR Clinical & Translational Research. The EU PRUDENT project aims to enhance the financing of oral health systems through novel evidence and implementation of better financing solutions together with citizens, patients, providers, and policy makers. The multicountry nature of the project offers unique windows of opportunity for rapid learning and improving within and across various contexts. PRUDENT is anticipated to strengthen capacities for better oral care financing in the EU and worldwide.
