Recovery , Reset , Redesign ?

– older persons’ oral health in the emerging post-pandemic environment

As the recovery continues for oral care services, at both clinical and population level , we are facing both a revised set of challenges, and also possible opportunities for accelerating positive change.

There is an increased focus on health and social care inequalities, reform of primary care services , the best use of resources, the benefits /drawbacks of the pandemic technology ‘surge ‘, and the resilience of healthcare personnel and systems as they navigate the tasks ahead.

The webinar will explore perspectives on how we preserve that which has worked for our patients and communities, while developing positive and agile responses to new demands.

Speakers from  Wales,England,Scotland,Northern Ireland and the EU.
