Education tools for dental practitioners

Education tools for dental practitioners

Partnership in Practising Care is a series of Continuing Professional Development education tools designed to support dentists treating people living with dementia.

Partnership in Care was developed in partnership with The Australian Dental Association (ADA) and jointly developed by dentists, medical practitioners and people living with dementia and their carers, to educate dentists and dental professionals on best practice care for people living with dementia.

The education modules encourage dentists to continue treating people living with dementia, to focus treatment on preventative methods and have a strong emphasis on quality of life.

This project was funded by the Dementia Australia National Quality Dementia Care Initiative with support from J.O. & J.R. Wicking Trust.
