New for 2017 – Dental Surgery First Aid
This course trains the individual or team with the skills to recognise and the competence to deal with medical emergencies common to dental practices including basic/advanced life support (CPR) and the administration of first-line drugs such as oxygen, adrenaline, glucose, glucagon, midazolam, GTN, aspirin and salbutamol.
The General Dental Council (GDC) has outlined the level of staff training they expect as follows…
All members of staff, not just registered team members, [should] know their role if a patient collapses or there is another kind of medical emergency. All members of staff who might be involved in dealing with a medical emergency are [should be] trained and prepared to deal with such an emergency at any time.
A minimum of 10 hours in every five-year CPD cycle must be spent on medical emergencies and resuscitation training.
Our paramedic trainers will carry out a full review and check all emergency medications at your practice in-line with the clinical practice guidelines.
This training is CPD verifiable, 4 points and certificates of attendance will be supplied inline with GDC guidelines.
