A Best-practice Oral Health Model for Australian Residential Care

Carers are essential to the delivery of oral hygiene care and maintenance of residents’ oral health in residential care facilities. This research will investigate the role that carers can play to maintain adequate oral health for residents, and improving their timely referral and access to dental professionals. It will also assist with the development of appropriate policies and procedures for oral and dental care, in accordance with Commonwealth Residential Aged Care Standards.
