The Center for Dental Hygienists’ Education and Training in Hiroshima University supported by the Ministry of Health, Labor and Welfare. Our missions are the prevention of the turnover and the support for the return to work as a dental hygienist. We have made efforts to organize the center and disseminated information in society. Furthermore, we have built a network of QOL/PRO researchers (http://qol_pro.umin.jp/). Several collaborative projects supported by the government grants have been conducted in the QOL/PRO research field since 2020.
