Report: Financing and Regulating Oral Health Care in
March 16, 2011
Addressing the problem that oral care is little more than emergency care—due to inadequate governmental funding and ageism among health care professionals—UBC Dentistry researchers undertook a systematic review of the literature on regulating and financing oral health care for frail elders in residential care.
The report, A Scoping Review and Research Synthesis on Financing and Regulating Oral Healthcare in Long-Term Care Facilities, summarizes the evidence available and notes the gaps in knowledge. Their research was supported by a grant from the Canadian Institutes of Health Research Institute on Aging.
