Developing Interprofessional Education and Practice in Oral Health


Getting Started
 

This teaching strategy will incorporate the ACES Essential Nursing Actions: Assess Function and Expectations, Coordinate and Manage Care, and Make Situational Decisions. The strategy utilizes the Smiles for Life curriculum from the Society of Teachers of Family Medicine. Access the Smiles for Life Curriculum at http://www.smilesforlifeoralhealth.org

It is important to review the Core Competencies for Interprofessional Collaborative Practice Report of the Interprofessional Education Collaborative Expert Panel. (2011). Retrieved from http://www.aacn.nche.edu/Education/pdf/IPECReport.pdf

Become familiar with Oral Health Patient FACTS. These pamphlets from the American College of Physicians & the Oral Health Nursing Education and Practice Program are designed to improve patients' oral health literacy by providing user-friendly, easy-to-understand information about how oral health and overall health are connected.
