    Title:

    Making the Mouth Matter: Tips on oral health for residents in the long-term care setting

    Summary:

    This educational session will discuss the importance of oral health in aging adults and the bi-directional relationship of oral disease on overall health. We will explore the oral status of older adults in the USA and Pennsylvania and discuss the barriers and facilitators to maintaining oral health and accessing oral health services for long-term care residents. Stage-appropriate care planning and dental interventions will be described. We will survey normal versus pathologic oral conditions in relation to the Minimal Data Set, Section L and discuss best practices in performing oral screenings. Examples of programs or initiatives that have made the mouth matter in long-term care settings will be highlighted.

THE ANNUAL CONFERENCE HAS GONE VIRTUAL!

It is obvious that, due to the pandemic emergency, the PANAC Annual Conference could not be conducted as planned but we know your need for information related to what you do.  To that end the Board of Directors, the Conference Committee and the Education Committee have been working with the scheduled speakers to provide the Annual Conference in a virtual format.  Recognizing that, as you will not be away from your office but still in the thick of things, the Board and Committees determined the best format would be to provide the content over a series of days with one presentation per day.  So between October and November 9 presentations, for a total of 10.5 CEs, will be conducted.  Due to the speaker's schedules some of these presentations may be pre-recorded and played during the scheduled time.  Questions will still be addressed as all questions will be collected, answered and posted on the Education Handouts area of the website.  Continuing education hours will be provided to those attending the scheduled presentation.  Replays accessed at a later date will not receive CE hours.  Session are listed on the calendar and registrations may begin October 12th, for most sessions.  PANAC Members will be attending at no cost.  Non-members will be charged a nominal $35/per session fee.

We hope that you will be able to join your colleagues in attending these informative presentations.
