Inhalation sedation could it benefit you, your patients and your practice?
Speaker: Richard Charon
Date: April 24, 2020
Room: Speaker room 2
My aims are to enlighten and inspire dental teams as to the wide scope of utility of this technique with reference to the literature but also demonstrating case examples.
No prior experience in the technique is required to gain from this session.
I will encourage the learner to consider Inhalation sedation as a viable option for the management of dental anxiety for both adults and children, whether as the provider operator-sedationist or as a referrer for sedation services.
A short MCQ will also be provided to comply with GDC quality assurance requirements.
By the end of the one-hour session, participants would be able to show they understand and could write short notes on
- Exactly what the technique entails,
- The pros and cons of utilising Inhalation sedation,
- The role and education requirements of the dental nurse,
- The learning pathway now required as a minimum and
- To be better able to assess the viability of investing in the training and equipment required.
There will be an opportunity to provide feedback for this session.
By better understanding the scope of inhalation sedation, Dental teams might be persuaded to utilise or refer for this option and thereby reduce the number of General Anaesthetic referrals with potential negative outcomes for the patient and costs to the state.
A – Effective communication with patients, the dental team and others across dentistry, including when obtaining consent, dealing with complaints and raising concerns when patients are at risk.
B – Effective management of self and effective management of others or effective work with others in the dental team, in the interests of patients; providing constructive leadership where appropriate.
C – Maintenance and development of knowledge and skill within your field of practice.
D – Maintenance of skills, behaviours and attitudes which maintain patient confidence in you and the dental profession and put patients’ interests first.
