Expressions of Interest in joining Oral Care consensus group.

The BACCN is proposing to develop a consensus statement relating to Oral Care and its significance in preventing ventilator associated pneumonia. This will involve generating evidence based recommendations for the delivery of best practice oral care and evaluating its effect on preventing ventilator associated pneumonia. The BACCN is looking for volunteers who would like to be members of this professional group that will form a consensus position statement relating to oral care within the U.K and beyond.

We are looking for expressions of interest for BACCN members to join this group. We would like to have broad representation from academics, education, management and front-line nurses. The commitment will be for representatives to attend a minimum of 2 meetings most likely held in London (possibly starting in April) as well as Webex meetings and email communication. All reasonable travel costs will be reimbursed but no attendance fees will be paid. Participants taking part in this group will be acknowledged in any future publications.

The group will be chaired by Dr Tim Collins, BACCN Professional Advisor on the National Board and selection into the group will be at the discretion of the BACCN board.

So if you have a professional interest in Oral care and want to make a difference to patient outcomes, then please contact us to express your interest in joining this professional group.

Please email support@baccn.org if you would like to take part in this project.

Thank you

Dr Tim Collins
BACCN Professional Advisor
BACCN National Board.
