This guide complements the Mouth Care Matters training that is currently being delivered in hospitals. The information to the best of our knowledge is up-to-date and evidence-based. Much of the focus of the guide is from experiences of our team on the wards.
This tool has been developed by the Mouth Care Matters team, working alongside nursing staff and allied health care professions. It has been audited and modified based on feedback. The recording pack consists of three parts (a) Mouth care screening – front page – to help identify high risk patients (b) Mouth care assessment – inside pages – to plan what support and care is needed (c) Daily recording sheet – back page. This entire form can be adapted to be used in different formats. For example, some trusts may use a stand alone tool, others may have it as part of a bundle of nursing care plans and others may use it digitally.
This tool is a modification of the above and has been developed from staff feedback to create for more space to record mouth care.
This tool has been developed for individuals in care homes. It screens to identify oral health problems, creates an oral care plan and has a recording sheet.
The purpose of this guide is to provide hospital staff with information on how to order suitable mouth care products for inpatients. MCM is not affiliated with any brand, company or product.
