Description

Diabetes Nurse Specialist Judy Downey RGN BSc(Hons) and Molly Agarwal, Public Health Professional and Dental Care Professional talk about oral health - Should we leave it all to the dentists? This LWN in Conversation style webinar will discuss:

Haven’t nurses got enough to do?

Should dentists look for diabetes?

A 40-minute live webinar that will be recorded and made available on demand.

Nurses and midwives are in a unique position to raise awareness about the importance of oral health and provide oral health education to individuals, families and communities. Implementing preventive measures early will alleviate individual pain, discomfort and disfigurement and reduce the economic burden of oral diseases on individuals and the health system.

A collaboration between C3 Collaborating for Health, the Commonwealth of Nurses and Midwifery Federation and Learn With Nurses.

Funded by Burdett Trust for Nursing.
