We provide In-house training sessions (2hrs) and Train the Trainer courses.

To ensure you are fully ‘CQC ready’ Knowledge Oral Health Care can assist with and provide template policies and clinical governance; demonstrating evidence of accurate record keeping and audits.

Providing good oral care for residents can be challenging; time constraints, increased workloads, uncooperative residents and carers lacking knowledge and skills can result in inadequate oral care. In order to safeguard the health and wellbeing of those people that are dependent on others, good daily oral care is crucial. In palliative and end-of-life care it becomes particularly important to ensure the person’s mouth is clean and comfortable.

I thoroughly enjoyed the session and I am looking forward to gaining confidence in delivering the training to staff within our company.
I had a few connection issues but they were soon resolved.
The trainer, Jane, was confident and clear in the discussion and training she was delivering.

SLT (January 2021)
I think the course was very informative- useful to know theory behind dental care in more detail- particularly to help advocate for my patients, was also helpful to obtain tips on how to carry out oral care e.g. stand from back

I think specifically for SLT in hospital setting there was not much practical application i could take from the coure
Things that may have been more helpful to cover for me would have been more on the neurological disorders that was covered quickly at the end- also a massive area now for SLT and mouthcare is the difficulties associated with those patients on CPAP/intubated patients. However i do realize this is quite specific to a hospital setting.

Thank you for putting together the course

SLT (January 2021)
This training was very accessible and covered a wide range of issues, from anatomy to practical strategies for achieving good oral health. I found the information about how to support and assist people very useful and Jane showed examples of different products available. This course plugged some gaps in my knowledge that I didn't know I had and has given me more confidence when discussing mouthcare with colleagues in care homes and patients.

Liked the simplicity of the assessments & care plans. The easier it is to understand the easier it will be for staff to implement the care across the homes.
