The Medically vulnerable elderly population have the highest need for oral care. Age Friendly Health System and the 4Ms framework offers the opportunity to assess oral health along with the overall patient assessment upon entering the system. The purpose of this learning series is to introduce the Age Friendly Health System as a guide to dental providers for a team approach treatment to enhance clinical outcomes of older adults.
On September 22, 2020 we will continue discussing the first pillar of the 4Ms framework, “What Matters most”. Understanding what matters the most to each elderly person may help providers to align care with each older adult’s specific health outcome goals and care preferences including, but not limited to, end-of-life care, and across settings of care.

Oral cancer is the 17th most common cancer globally, 3rd most common cancer in India (most common cancer among males), and 18th most common in the US, with a low 5-year survival rate. Tobacco is the primary risk factor for oral cancer. However, in 2012, the International Agency of Research of Cancer showed sufficient evidence for an association of a subtype of HPV 16 with oral cancers. This seminar will discuss the basic biology and epidemiology of such HPV-related oral cancers, a brief overview of the role of the virus in benign oral lesions, and elaboration on its role as a risk factor in oral potentially malignant and malignant lesions. Multiple case discussions will be included on some of the common oral potentially malignant disorders/oral cancer cases encountered in India.
