Abstract


Standards of dental care in residential homes will be the first area for discussion pages on the Gerodontology Special Interest Group (GSIG) on the lADR-Dental Faculty Site (http://www.iadi-dentalfaculty.org) an IADR web site which is sponsored by Unilever Dental Research and run by a team based at Glasgow University Dental School.

The basis of the 4 following topics were developed by a 'break-out' group at the British Society of Gerodontology (BSG) meeting in York, England in May, 1999. Care pathways, in partnership with the Debate of the Age under the Chairmanship of the President: Robin Basker. Feedback from these groups was presented at the close of the day. These have been established on the web site as the basis for ongoing discussion to widen the debate in this international forum.

They provide a structure for developing an ongoing discussion. Please comment. They are not yet perfect and will need adapting for different cultures; but they have been carefully considered and we hope that they will provide bases to get service moving.
