Theory II

  1. information collected during the evaluation procedure 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 the treatment outcomes
    evaluation design
  3. data collection procedures and strategies that are selected to determine whether or not expected outcomes related to patient 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 pts care, includeing the dentist, the de3ntal hygienist, the patient, and the patient's physician or caregiver, if necessary. Biving and recieving feedback creates trust and ensures that those involved in all aspects of pt care stay informed at every step
  5. ongoing evaluation to monitor each step in the denta hygiene process of care; ongoing feedback that determines any needed chages in the dental hygiene care plan prior to the completion of a treatment sequence
    formative evaluation
  6. benchmarks used to measure or test changes. In evaluating dental hygiene interventions, indicators can be quantitative (such as measurements of probing depth or plaque scores) or qualitative (such as aptient expressions of satisfaction or ability to perform self-care routines)
  7. measureable goals; the expected outcomes of clinical treatment, pt education, counseling, or oral hygiene instruction/home care interventions 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
    outcomes assessment
  9. formal standardized evaluation procedures conducted at the end of a treatment series; includes determinatin of periodontal maintenance interval and/or identification of further treatment needs
    summative evaluation
  10. action in accordance with request; extent to which a person's health behaviors 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 diseased site becomes inactive or stable without treatment
    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 treatment
    periodontal maintenace therapy = PMT
  15. system of appoinments for the long-term maintenance phase of pt care; the system is carrie out by computer, telephone, and/or mail
  16. resistant, not responding to routine therapy
  17. diminution or abatement of the symptoms of a disease; the period during which the diminution occurs
  18. the diagnosis made at a reevaluation spaced for a period of time after treatment ) or a series of treatments); diagnosis that shows the response to prior treatment
    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. procedures of this are performed at selected intervals as an extension of periodontal therapy to assist the pt in maintaining oral health; includes complete assessment, reiew of and/or additional instruction in dental biofilm control, and sucn clinical procedures as scaling and root planing; also called preventive maintenance, periodontal maintenance therapy
    supportive periodontal therapy = SPT
