This paper outlines the following recommendations from Roadmap Implementation Governance Group (RIGG) members to strengthen the provision of oral health care for people with intellectual disability:
- expanding oral health promotion
- increasing the volume of services
- expanding workforce training.
The Roadmap Implementation Governance Group oversees and provides advice on implementation of the National Roadmap for Improving the Health of People with Intellectual Disability (the roadmap).
The roadmap aims to address serious health inequities faced by people with intellectual disability. It outlines how we can create a health system where people with intellectual disability are valued, respected and have access to high quality, timely and comprehensive health care. Element D of the roadmap includes actions for improving oral health.
