Oral Health Training DVD

As previously reported, VHCA is working in collaboration with Lucy Corr Village in Midlothian to provide oral health training resources free of charge to all Virginia nursing facilities that are geared toward direct care staff with a strong focus on CNA responsibilities.  Lucy Corr Village has developed five in-service educational and training sessions available on one DVD.  This educational resource tool was made possible through grant funding received from the Virginia Center on Aging's Geriatric Training and Education Initiative.   We are pleased to report that the training DVD, to be provided free of charge to all member nursing facilities, will be mailed the week of October 15th.  The cost of the DVD duplication and mailing is being covered by VHCA’s Commonwealth Long Term Care Foundation.

We would like to recognize the efforts and generous contributions of Lucy Corr’s Dr. Patricia Bonwell and Debra Marlow for making this training resource available.
