Toolkit for Improving Mouth Care in Hospitals – Released Today

New Mouth Care Matters valuable toolkit now available to download


We have developed a resource that will help support health care professionals to improve the standards of mouth care for adult inpatients during their hospital stay.

The toolkit covers audits, staff and patient surveys, training ideas, people to collaborate with in a hospital and how to develop a mouth care improvement plan.

Mili Doshi, Clinical Lead for MCM says – “We frequently get asked for guidance on improving mouth care in hospitals, ‘where to start?’, ‘how to collect the evidence that mouth care needs to improve?’. We wanted to create a legacy document sharing what we have learned over the last few years. We hope that the toolkit helps others, who can use or modify all or part of it.”


The toolkit can adapted to meet the governance standards of your organisation.

The toolkit can be found here, for more resources please visit our resources page here
