Oral Health Care: More Than Just Brushing Your Teeth
Wednesday, September 22, 12:00-1:00 pm
Oral care is an integral medical intervention supporting overall health. For individuals with neurological conditions, physical, cognitive and sensory impairments can create barriers to maintaining oral health, increasing the risk of medical complications and other diseases. Through increased education and compensatory strategies, healthcare professionals and caregivers can help individuals achieve good oral hygiene and improve overall quality of life.
After this 60-minute webinar you will be able to:
-Discover the importance of oral care in general and as a component of medical intervention
-Describe the proper techniques for brushing, flossing and caring for dentures
-Explain and address common barriers to adequate oral care in settings across the rehabilitation continuum
-Apply adapted approaches to oral care to support individuals with physical/perceptual impairments, cognitive challenges and dysphagia
This presentation offers one hour of CEU accreditation from CCMC and CRC.
