Abstract

OBJECTIVES:

The 2007 International Federation of Dental Hygienists (IFDH) House of Delegates participated in a two day forum to discuss professional topics of interest and to provide a focus for the direction of the profession and the IFDH.

MATERIALS AND METHODS:

Delegates were asked to select a work group of interest based on four main topics: promoting evidence-based dental hygiene practice, procedures, and products; disease prevention and health promotion for primary health care; promoting interprofessional collaboration; and, reframing dental hygiene education. Each work group was challenged to address key questions and create a summary statement with recommendations to the IFDH.

RESULTS:

Each work group identified numerous areas for professional growth and development and created a list of aspirations for the profession and the association to achieve.

CONCLUSION:

The IFDH has made a commitment to the HOD to incorporate proposed recommendations and future aspirations.
