Oral Nutritional Supplements & Oral Health in People with Cystic Fibrosis
A researcher in the dental hospital has developed a patient information booklet regarding the use of Oral Nutritional Supplements in People with Cystic Fibrosis.
Dr Niamh Coffey, Clinical Fellow in Restorative Dentistry, developed the booklet in conjunction with Ciara Howlett, Senior Clinical Nutritionist, CUH and Cystic Fibrosis Ireland. It seeks to inform people with CF (PWCF) who take Oral Nutritional Supplements of the potential risks involved and gives advice as to how to prevent oral disease. The booklets have been distributed to all the CF units in the country and will be available on the dental hospital website. It will be a useful resource to improve the oral health of PWCF who take ONS.
