Abstract

Oral health care (OHC) is a deceptively simple task. For many people with stroke-related limitations, the routine practice of OHC becomes a challenge and they become partially or totally reliant on others for their OHC. Poor oral health contributes to discomfort, pain, infection, and systematic health problems. Evidence-based OHC interventions are essential for this vulnerable patient group. Our recent Cochrane review update1 synthesized the randomized control trial evidence relating to the effectiveness of staff-led OHC interventions for individuals after a stroke.
