  1. information collected during the evaluation prodecure that is analyzed to determine oral health outcomes related to dental hygiene interventions
  2. a description of the purpose, plans, and strategies that will be needed to gather, process, and interpret the data used to determine tx outcomes
    evaluation design
  3. data collection procedures and strategies that are selected to determine whether or not expected outcomes related to pt specific oral health goals identified in the dental hygiene care plan have been met
    evaluation methods
  4. communication that occurs amont all individuals participating in the pt's care, including the dentist, the dental hygienist, the pt and the pt's physician or cargiver, if necessary. Giving and recieving feedback creates trust and ensures that thos involved in all aspects of pt care stay informed at every step
  5. ongoing evaluation to monitor each step in the dental hygiene process of care; ongoing feedback that determines any needed changes in the dental hygiene care plan prior to the completion of a tx sequence
    formative evaluation
  6. benchmarks used to meausre or test changes. In evaluating dental hygiene interventions, indicators can be quantitative (such as measurement of probing depth or plaque scores) or qualitative (such as pt expressions of satisfaction or ability to perform self-care routines).
  7. measureable goals; the expected outcomes of clinical tx, pt education, counseling, or oral hygiene instruction/home care intervneions identified in the pt care plan
  8. a measure of the effectiveness of dental hygiene clinical and educational interventions in meeting oral health goals identified in the pt care plan
    ooucomes assessment
  9. formal standardized evaluation procedures conducted at the end of a tx series, includes determination of periodontal maintenance interval and/or identification of further tx needs
    summative evaluation
  10. action in accordance with request; extent to which a person's health behavoirs coincide with dental/medical health advice. also called adherence
  11. the joint deliberation, usually for diagnostic purposes, between two or more practitioners or between a pt and a practitioner
  12. ongoing dynamic process that results in loss of clinical attachment and alveolar supporting bone; an area is quiescent when a diseases site becomes inactive or stable without tx
    disease activity
  13. criteria for completion of a particular procedure; therapeutic end points generally have been reached when the clinical signs of the treated pathologic condition have been eliminated or reduced
    end points
  14. also called preventive maintenance, supportive periodontal tx
    periodontal maintenance therapy
  15. system of appointmens for the long-term maintenance phase of pt care; the system is carried out by computer, telephone, and/or mail
  16. resistant, not responding to routine therapy
  17. diminution or abatement of the symptoms of disease; the priod during which the diminution occurs
  18. the diagnosis made at reevaluation spaced for a period of time after tx; diagnosis that shows the respone to prior tx
    response diagnosis
  19. a characteristic, habit, or predisposing condition that makes an individual susceptible to, or in danger of acquiring, a certain disease or disability
    risk factor
  20. prodecures performed at selected intervals as an extension of periodontal therapy to assit the pt in maintaning oral health; includes complete assessment, review of and/or additional instruction in dental biofilm control, and such clinical procedures as scaling and root planing; also called preventive maintenance, periodontal maintenance therapy
    supportive periodontal therapy
