This package of training materials was designed by a national advisory committee to engage two different audiences: 1) direct caregivers and 2) facility administrators and/or trainers in long-term facilities. The direct caregiver training materials are designed to engage direct caregivers in maintaining oral health of people for whom they are caring.
The material for administrators and trainers provides suggestions for facility administrators, directors, supervisors and trainers about how to create and implement an oral health program in an organization.
Most importantly, the training materials can be adapted to a variety of educational settings and structures and may be used in a pyramid training program where oral health professionals train facility managers, supervisors, directors, or training staff and they in turn train direct care staff.
The training program is contained on two discs, a CD and a DVD. The Direct Caregiver Workbook and Administrators & Trainers Manual can be purchased from the Pacific Center for Special Care printed and bound, or you can print them directly from the CD.
