This one hour CPD course covers the subject of assessments in IV sedation in dentistry. It is suitable for all members of the dental team and gives a broad overview and a framework in helping practitioners not only gauge the patients suitability for sedation, but also helps with assessing the difficulty of the upcoming sedation session.
Preoperative sedation assessments (according to IACSD guidelines) are to be carried out by the sedation practitioner but with more practices using the services of visiting sedationists, it is useful to have this knowledge in order to screen the patients more effectively.
This course is meant as an initial theory starter for assessments, it is not designed to fully train the practitioner.
This course satisfies the GDC outcomes A and C. Completion of the course is via a quiz and feedback and a certificate is available on successful completion.
