- Recommendation ID
Reducing demands on health and social care services:- Do preventive oral health interventions in residential and nursing care homes reduce demands on other health and social care services?
- Any explanatory notes
Why this is important:- No research has been conducted in England that demonstrates a reduction in demand on other resources, such as hospital admissions, as a result of oral health care interventions. This is particularly important if limited resources are to be used efficiently.
