HKU Faculty of Dentistry collaborated with Department of Social Work and Social Administration to provide oral and sleep health care to patients of NLPRA
The HKU Faculty of Dentistry and Department of Social Work and Social Administration (HKU-SWSA) organized the project with New Life Psychiatric Rehabilitation Association (NLPRA) to deliver oral and sleep health care to patients with depression and anxiety in their community service centers. The service provided knowledge and skills about depression and anxiety disorder-specific oral and sleep health care to the staff of NLPRA, and therefore empowered them to provide a sustainable oral health care training to the patients with depression and anxiety at service centers. Educational sessions about sleep hygiene and oral health were also delivered to 36 staff. Primary dental health service for the patients was offered to 119 patients with depression and/or anxiety at NLPRA service centers.
The project was supported by the HKU Knowledge Exchange Fund 2018/19. More details can be obtained from the Faculty External Relations and Knowledge Exchange Unit or via email to firstname.lastname@example.org.
