As a Health Care Educator you will find many of the Brushing Up resources will be useful when planning oral health education programming for nursing and care staff in residential care or home support settings and for college students preparing for a career in health care. For a comprehensive education program, the Brushing Up Facilitator’s Guide and the Brushing Up Facilitator’s Guide Video provide PowerPoint sides and templates with detailed facilitator notes for four specific education sessions.
A Video Series has also been developed with the input of Care Providers, nursing and administrative staff who support residents and clients in meeting their personal care needs. Material presented in the videos will be helpful to support education on:
- Brushing Techniques & Oral Health Products
- Considerations for Palliative Care
- Considerations for Dementia
- Oral Health Assessment Tool (OHAT)
- Oral Health Basics
Additional Information Sheets are available on a broad range of topics. You may find Oral Health Assessments, Care Cards and Tips on Product Use to be especially helpful if you are helping Health Administrators to set up a formalized daily mouth care program.
