Whole Mouth Health: Oral Health Literacy and Behaviour Change
‘Whole Mouth Health’ seeks to provide people with the resources and capacity to better understand and enact models of self-care that sustain good oral health.
A co-design approach has been adopted to explore this challenge in different cultures and across the age spectrum.
This webinar will describe the data from the first phase of the co-design approach, outline the method for phase 2 and introduce the framework for a digital platform that will enables others to conduct the same co-design study.
The prevailing model for oral healthcare provision is based on intervention, where dentists respond to the presence of active disease. There is growing acceptance that this is resource intensive, of debatable effectiveness and poor value for money at a population level, when compared to prevention. This presentation will articulate the need for a population-based approach that focuses on prevention, drawing on a recent Lancet publication. It will also argue that people needed to be provided not only with the knowledge of the need to change, but also the resources and capacity to enact self-care models that sustain good oral health.
A WMH model cannot be based on a ‘one size fits all’ solution. Adapting to individual needs and tailoring to specific contexts is necessary for such a model to work. Hence a co-design approach has been applied.
This part of the webinar will explore the thinking behind the design strategies for sharing and commenting on collected data (from phase 1) in the phase 2 participatory information books.
And outline the plans to develop an online digital resource to allow for a broader sharing and participation in the project.
