CPR in the Dental Practice – 2 hour course
This course covers basic CPR and Defibrillation in a dental practice.
It does not cover the use of any medical resuscitation equipment such as oxygen or resuscitation drugs such as adrenalin. If you have this type of equipment you need to complete the 5 hour medical emergency course below.
Management of Medical Emergencies in the Dental Practice – 5 hour course
This course covers CPR, defibrillation, sudden collapse, chest pain, fitting, anaphylaxis plus other medical emergencies that can occur in a dental practice.
What sets this course above others is that it was designed specifically for dental practices and the most likely conditions that a dentist may encounter from their patients.
It focuses heavily on identified threats and uses crew resource management techniques to prepare the practice for a coordinated team approach in managing medical emergencies.
We come to you and train your team in their own environment, allowing realistic simulations of common emergencies and the provision of advice specific to your practice’s equipment, location and floor plan.
Infection Control in the Dental Practice – 2 hour course
Our 2 hour refresher course in the Management of Infection Control in the Dental Practice teaches dentists and the dental team how to manage the risk of cross infection and how to mitigate the threats posed by a variety of organisms including COVID-19, SARS, MRSA, bacterias and viruses.
The course covers universal precautions, hand washing and cleaning procedures, use of PPE, and explains how to validate cleaning and disinfection in accordance with AS/NZ 4815:2006 and AS/NZ 4187:2003.
Although this course is not an audit, we do complete the Dental Boards Self Audit tool with your team. You can complete the training on the same day as the medical emergency course (with prior arrangement).
