Abstract

This scoping review will map the literature on the extent of knowledge on living environment oral health care (LIVEOR) by examining its different terminologies, its description, the stakeholders involved, the implementation characteristics, and the outcomes reported by the authors. Older people want to receive oral health care in their current living environment. Although several authors have explored some aspects of LIVEOR for older people, there are still inconsistent findings regarding the extent of this model of care. This scoping review will include quantitative, qualitative, and mixed method studies, as well as any type of knowledge synthesis on LIVEOR involving people aged 60 years and over. The search will not be limited by language, time frame, geographic location, or publication date. We will use the JBI methodology for scoping reviews and the Preferred Reporting Items for Systematic Reviews and Meta-Analysis extension for Scoping Reviews (PRISMA-ScR). The search will include MEDLINE, CINAHL, Embase, Web of Science, and the Cochrane Library. A hand-search of the references of the included studies, and a gray literature search will also be conducted. Two independent reviewers will screen titles, abstracts, and full texts of selected studies, and perform data extraction. Findings are expected to explore what is known of LIVEOR targeting older people and to identify any knowledge gaps for future studies. We will disseminate our findings mostly through peer-reviewed publications. Open Science Framework https://osf.io/e7fm2.
