We were able to follow the tooth fairy and her friend toothy as they delivered #motivate #oralhealth kits to every resident. These kits were provided by Lunder Dineen as part of the MOTIVATE program now being implemented at the Machias Maine Veterans’ Home. #oralhealthforall #oralhealth is #totalhealth

The 2018 Lunder-Dineen #mainenursingpreceptoreducationprogram is well underway! Over 200 nurses are working diligently to complete their online learning modules in preparation for the full day day in person workshop in the coming weeks. New to this year‘s program, is the addition of a second target audience— clinical nurse educators.  The overarching goal of the program is to advance and support the recruitment, integration, satisfaction and retention of nurses across the continuum of care in Maine.
Proud of the team at #bucksport Regional Health Centet for their participation in the #timetoask program. Many of the individuals in these photographs served on a year-long committee to bring this program to their primary care practice. They want to provide all patients with the information they need to make informed decisions about alcohol consumption. According to the CDC an estimated 88,000 people die from alcohol related causes annually. #alcoholswarenessmonth
Grateful to @hussonu professor Dr. Stephanie Nichols who volunteered her time and expertise to provide a medication treatment in-service to the interprofessional team at the Bucksport Regional Health Center as they prepare to ask every patient every time about alcohol so that patients can make informed decisions about their level of risk. Dr. Nichols serves as an advisor to the #timetoask program. Dr. Nichols is A psychiatric and substance use disorder pharmacist.
Making a difference for older adults in long term care with the #motivate program.
