The Oral Assessment Guide (OAG) can be used by the clinician to evaluate changes in the oral cavity. The OAG is comprised of eight categories of mucositis assessment of the mouth on a scale of 1 to 3, with “1” indicating normal and “3” indicating breakdown or loss of function. The OAG has been validated and is reliable in the current published format. Permission is granted for use in the current format. Any modifications will require new testing for validity and reliability. The OAG has been widely used in cancer and other populations and published in professional journals and books.
