Training for the Dental Team
story - Awareness
training for the Dental Team on Dental patients with dementia
A thought-provoking new film aimed at dental professionals to raise awareness of
the issues faced by patients with dementia when attending a dental appointment
has been launched by Health Education England (HEE). To view the film, please
Pearson, HEE Chair said, “The film gives us a real insight into just how
confusing attending a dentist appointment can be for someone with dementia.
Figures show that 800,000 people in the UK have dementia and many of these
people will have experienced visiting their local dental practice. It will provide
dental teams with valuable information on how difficult things can be for
people with dementia and provide some ideas on how to make arrangements to make
the process smoother and easier for their patients.”

Making Every Contact Count
Professionals are now able to access the West Midlands’ resources for
“Making Every Contact Count”. Staff in day-to-day contact with the public will find the modules available particularly useful.
access the resources for free by registering on e-lfh (be sure to choose the
West Mids’ e-learning and not Wessex’s):
include the following:
Encounters: this first e-learning session, suitable for all frontline staff, is
based on a simple Ask, Advise Assist conversation framework to enable all
frontline staff to have brief conversations that raise awareness of wellbeing
(and lifestyle behaviours), say something encouraging and supportive of making
changes, and signpost to trusted sources of information and support. The focus
is on all aspects of wellbeing.
Change: in this second session, the focus is on the behaviour change model and
person-centred conversation framework.
The session is suitable for staff working with people who are either at
high risk of lifestyle-related health conditions or already have one or more
health conditions or who care for people with health conditions. Through using
a person-centred conversation framework, workers are able to encourage people
to consider the personal outcomes that are important to them, and to identify
their first steps towards achieving them as well as the support that they feel
they will need to take those initial steps. This session also introduces a
health-coaching conversation framework for workers supporting people to make
and maintain their desired behaviour changes.
- MECC Plus for
Integrated Care: these additional resources complete the toolkit and support
the workforce to implement MECC based on Integrated Care principles and
practice. They comprise case studies, PowerPoint and exemplar MECC pathways,
illustrating how brief person-centre conversations can support the holistic
assessment of a person’s needs as well as enable the person to make changes
necessary to improve their self-care management. A MECC Plus Manual suggests bite-sized
learning opportunities for managers and trainers to use with their teams. A MECC Plus Pocketbook provides an aide memoire
for all frontline staff.
also national MECC resources available (such as consensus statement on MECC and
