The Oral Health CoP was created in 2009, and operated as a trans-sectoral knowledge-based network to promote the dissemination of evidence-based, clinically relevant oral health information. The CoP facilitated the exchange of this knowledge to long-term care providers and care providers of frail older adults across the health care and oral/dental care sectors.
