‘Mouthcare Matters’

Speaker: Paula Darkin , Mouth Care Lead Dental Nurse / Trainer, Northumbria Healthcare NHS Trust

This session is FREE and open to all!


Health and social care staff from a wide range of professions and organisations are involved in the care of older people with complex needs. In order to ensure seamless, quality care for this population, it is essential that the whole workforce is highly competent and appropriately skilled. One way of doing this is through the use of a Competency framework specific to the needs of older people.

The interactive webinars are being created to support health and social care staff from a wide range of professions and organisations in everyday practice and each contain insight, information, advice and support with opportunities to learn.

During the session

We will keep participants muted whilst we are presenting. This avoids distracting our speakers and also reduces sensory stimulation which is important for some people. However, if you wish to ask a question you can do this by adding it in the chat box. Please feel free to turn your camera on and off as you need to. If you need it off the whole time, that is totally fine.

If you need a break at any time during the session then please leave the meeting and re-join again when you feel ready.
