New Training Animation on “How to Care for a Dry Mouth” available

Mouth Care Matters (MCM) has developed a new training animation on how to provide care for a dry mouth.

Dry Mouth is a common symptom in hospitals caused by many factors.  This can greatly affect a patient’s comfort and quality of life.  Having a dry mouth is not merely uncomfortable but can affect the ability to eat, drink and socialise.  This in turn can affect overall recovery.

This educational resource illustrates the appropriate way to provide care to patients suffering with a dry mouth in hospital.
