About this course
Oral health has a big impact on our quality of life. We express ourselves by talking or smiling. We can take immense enjoyment from what we eat or drink and pride in the state of our teeth and gums. These things are just as important for people living in care homes, so good oral health care must not stop once a person enters a home.
What does Oral Health Care Course cover?
The NICE guideline NG48, published in July 2016, recognised the importance of good oral care. Their recommendations aim to maintain and improve the oral health, including dental health and daily mouth care, for adults in care homes. Staff training was one of their recommendations to improve good practise and staff competence. This 3 hour course will give staff additional skills to support those they work with in their oral care.
