Webinar Series: Oral Health

Oral Health for Older Adults in Palliative Care and Long-Term Settings

Featuring: Dawn Pavlu, APN, ACHPN; Rose Anne Indelicato, MSN, APRN-BC, PCM-BC, OCN; Charles Tilley, MS, ANP-BC, ACHPN, CWOCN; Alexander Ross Kerr, DDS, MSD; Judi Haber, PhD, APRN, BC, FAAN

Elders residing in institutional settings have unique oral care needs. Often facing multiple chronic conditions, limited access to dental care, and self-care deficits, these seniors are especially vulnerable to suboptimal oral hygiene and oral/dental complications. This webinar will focus on the role of nursing and the interprofessional team in the oral care of elders in long term care settings. Emphasis will be placed on the palliative oral care issues of those with multiple medical co-morbidities or serious advanced illness. Oral palliative care focuses on the management of oral symptoms and the promotion of oral hygiene and comfort, with the goal of optimizing quality of life.

In collaboration with NICHE (Nurses Improving Care for Healthsystem Elders), the Hartford Institute for Geriatric Nursing (HIGN) and the Oral Health Nursing Education and Practice (OHNEP) have developed a new Oral Health Webinar Series. This new series will address and promote interprofessional oral health, and provide tools and education that healthcare professionals can use to improve the quality of oral healthcare that older adults receive. Each webinar, 1 hour in length, will provide nursing continuing education.
