P705 Basic Oral Care for the Mouth Cancer Patient

  • About This Course

With mouth cancer patients a great deal of emphasis is placed on the early detection, subsequent treatment and then hopefully recovery and cure, and quite rightly so. On the pathway that the patient finds themselves is an area that often gets forgotten, this is basic oral care of the mouth before, during their treatment and then the care of their mouth after treatment. Make no mistake about it, the quality of life that the patient has after their cancer treatment is completed is as important as any treatment that is carried out.
