Prehabilitation – Oral Care and the Oncology Patient and Developing a Collaborative Connection

Oct 12, 2022



Presenter: Kris Potts, RDH, BS, FAADH
Credits:  1 CEU

Multiple healthcare workers, from different professional backgrounds, working together result in improved outcomes, a better care experience, and a reduction in health costs. The dental professional can assist medical professionals in making a proper diagnosis and assuring patient follow up. The oral care concerns of an oncology patient are similar, yet at the same time unique, than those of your average xerostomia and oral ulcerations in patients. Dentistry is in a unique position to make a difference for those currently fighting or having survived a cancer diagnosis using evidence-based recommendations.

After completion of this CE webinar attendees will be able to:
• Better understand the role of dentistry in the Intercollaborative Care of a cancer patient
• Assist in developing an anticipatory treatment plan for the cancer patient’s oral care needs
• Understand the difference in xerostomia and mucositis of a cancer patient
• Evaluate a variety of products available and understand when they are indicated
• Be able to make appropriate patient recommendations   ( disclaimerbio and commercial disclosure )
