Title V National Performance Measure 13 (Oral Health): Strategies for Success
The National Maternal and Child Oral Health Resource Center (OHRC) is pleased to announce a new publication.
This resource provides detailed information to help state maternal and child health programs in their implementation of the Title V national performance measure on oral health (NPM 13) and oral-health-related state performance measures. It provides sample strategies for addressing NPM 13.1 (preventive dental visit for pregnant women) and 13.2 (preventive dental visit for children and adolescents, ages 1–17). The strategies were adapted from those submitted by states in their Title V 5-year state action plan to address their priority needs. The resource also provides sample evidence-based or evidence-informed strategy measures (ESMs); possible data sources for ESMs; and a selection of resources, including best practice approach reports, curricula, guides, manuals, and risk assessments, and contacts for more assistance.
Information about the Title V MCH Services Block Grant application, the 5-year needs assessment, and NPMs, including the 32 states addressing NPM 13, is available from the Title V MCH Services Block Grant Oral Health Toolkit.
