Geriatric Oral Health Webinar Series

In collaboration with NICHE (Nurses Improving Care for Healthsystem Elders), the Hartford Institute for Geriatric Nursing (HIGN) and the Oral Health Nursing Education and Practice (OHNEP) have developed a new Geriatric Oral Health Webinar Series. This new series will address and promote interprofessional oral health, and provide tools and education that healthcare professionals can use to improve the quality of oral healthcare that older adults receive.
