Document Dental Contract Reform - Should a self-care plan be given to every patient at every Oral Health Assessment (OHA) / Oral Health Review (OHR) appointment?

The self-care plans should be used as clinicians think appropriate.

Example: some patients may only need it at the Oral Health Assessment (OHA) and not again whilst other patients may require constant reinforcement.

The self-care plan should be used where most benefit will be gained.

Example: for a family, it may be better for key messages to be given to all family members but the plan left with ‘mum’ as the driver at home.
