2021 has been challenging, and everyone deserves some rewards at the conclusion of the year. Our CPD speakers are still being finalised and our planned topics will cover pharmacology, oral pathology and periodontics.
We will also be announcing the 2021 winner of the Tammie Birch Inspirational Award.

It is well known that oral health in aged care is a challenging area that has been neglected, impacting on the nutrition, mental health, quality of life and exacerbating many chronic medical conditions and pain. The older population often take many medications for both chronic and acute conditions that may impact on their oral health. This presentation outlines issues and practical tips for oral health practitioners and pharmacists to collaborate to support the older population.
