Tooth Wisdom for Pharmacists: Helping Older Adults with Oral Health

Project Type: 
Interprofessional Oral Health Care
Amount Awarded: 
$25,000
Grant Type: 
DTA Foundation
Year: 
2014

The goal of the Tooth Wisdom for Pharmacists project is to create an information system designed to educate pharmacists to better serve older adults seeking information related to oral health. This system will include: an oral health curriculum that will be taught during a regional professional development summit for pharmacists; an easily accessible online toolkit that contains educational information designed to assist pharmacists with providing information about oral health-related topics to older adults; and plain-language materials (one page consumer sheets) that can be readily available and dispensed at the pharmacy counter for older adults seeking to educate themselves.
