of verifiable CPD
Traditionally, oral health has been viewed as the sole responsibility of the dental fraternity. However, with increasing awareness of a team approach to healthcare, the dental fraternity needs to work collaboratively with their counterparts from the medical fraternity to forge alliances with them and empower them to identify and detect early signs of oral conditions among the elderly for early dental referrals and management.
On completion of this module you will understand the challenges of geriatric oral health and the benefit of a team approach to care.
