She progressed to do a PhD in Physiology/Dentistry. In addition, she has a MBA qualification from Kingston University (UK). Dr. Shiikha’s work focus on rural/remote dental workforce distribution. Her first project with the team was to calculate which Australian communities lacked a dental service within a reasonable travel time/distance.

The Collaborative Case Modelling is a system in which several specialists from different clinical disciplines simultaneously consult on an individual patient whose treatment requires input from multiple clinical areas. Currently complex assessment require the patient to have consultations with multiple specialists, necessitating multiple appointments, duplicating travel, time from work or school and significant costs. In this seminar, Dr Shiikha and Dr Orloff will discuss the importance of distance health services. The seminar will show the implementation of a care model into a busy orthodontic practice.

Abstract: Tele-diagnosis has become a popular method utilised in healthcare. Health informatics has contributed to a high-quality, cost effective and time efficient care for individuals and populations in many countries around the world. Australia, as an example, has one of the healthiest populations but it still has significant inequalities in healthcare. Health information research and publications are a vitally important step in the contribution to the solution of inequalities, through the sharing of experiences, in continuing development of evidence-based health informatics. Dr Shiikha and Dr Orloff will discuss the impact of access to receive or to provide orthodontic care.
