Event description
Welcome to the 7th Sunstar Conversations Pro webinar, dedicated to the Caregivers!

About this event

In many parts of the world, life expectancy is increasing. As a result, more patients are depending on long-term care. Part of these patients are nursing home residents, but the majority are home-care recipients. In both cases, they largely depend on caregivers. But often, this concerns relatives without any form of training. As a result, oral health may often be neglected by caregivers, mostly because of the lack of awareness, knowledge, and resources.

During this webinar you will learn with our experts, Dr. Larisa Musić and Prof. dr. Falk Schwendicke, what can you do as an oral care professional to support caregivers ensuring these patients receive the best possible oral care.

This is an online event. After the registration, the link to the live stream will appear on the right side.
