Description

The authors have produced both a narrated PowerPoint with embedded video clips as well as a non-narrated power point presentation which will provide a review of the numerous effects a cerebrovascular accident can have on the oral cavity. Common oral hygiene practices of nursing staff that are inadequate and may be detrimental to oral health are explained and therapeutic alternatives are presented and demonstrated. The effects of poor oral hygiene on overall systemic health are outlined along with an oral hygiene regimen and demonstration for long-term care patients and those affected by stroke. Therapeutic oral products that enhance the oral health of long-term care patients and those affected by stroke along with procedures for their use are also explained and presented in the video. The presentation and video will prepare a non-dental professional to provide routine oral care. Lastly, ways that dental, medical and nursing professionals can be influential in changing the standard of care for long-term care patients are suggested.
