Oral Hygiene - attitudes and practice. Implications for pneumonia prevention.

We talk about the knowledge attitudes and practice of nurses regarding oral hygiene of dependent inpatients in this podcast with Dr Isabel Oliveira. Understanding these is an important element of improving oral care and potentially reducing hospital acquired pneumonia (HAP) more broadly.  Isbael is a rehabilitation nurse with a particular focus and interest in dysphagia and oral care, including the prevention of HAP. She works at the  Centre for Health Studies and Research of the University of Coimbra (CEISUC) in Portugal. 


The paper referred to in this podcast is "Knowledge, attitudes and practices of nurses regarding oral hygiene of dependent inpatients".
