Cheryl Dezotti was a co-founder of the Nurses for Nurses Network and the Nursing CPD Institute. As a Nurse Education Consultant, and a Wound Care Specialist.

Cheryl’s varied and interesting career highlights include clinical experience in acute surgical, medical, and infection control. The completion of her Master’s degree in Quality in Health Care led to senior management roles in both the acute and aged care sectors, the later leading to her appointment as a Nurse Advisor and Administrator with the Department of Health and Ageing.

Cheryl has worked extensively in the field of education in a number of healthcare and university settings. She has a long standing passion for wound care and has lectured widely on the subject in both Australia and internationally. This passion has led her to author a wound assessment book as well as creating a post graduate wound care course.

As an author, Cheryl’s aim is to provide the reader information that can be easily and practically applied in the clinical setting. As a presenter, Cheryl is known for her ability to deliver the complexities of clinical nursing research in a straight forward and easily understood format that allows attendees to easily apply the content to their individual clinical practice.

Cheryl’s goal is to make a difference to the recipients of health care and she believes that a positive outcome for the patient can only be achieved if Nurses keep up to date with best practice guidelines and their practical application in the workplace.

Oral Care Part A 

Cheryl Dezotti, Educator/ Nurse Consultant - The Nursing CPD Institute
More aged care residents have their natural teeth. Many residents take medications that contribute to dry mouth. The onset of major oral health problems takes place well before an older person moves into residential aged care. As residents become frailer and more dependent, they are at high risk of their oral health worsening in a relatively short time if their daily oral hygiene is not maintained adequately. A simple protective oral health care regimen will maintain good oral health.
