Product Description

This short but comprehensive  5 hr [can be modified up to 6hr on request] course is designed to support clinical and non-clinical staff covering medical emergencies that may occur in general aspects of dental care. The aim of the course is to enable all learners to attain the knowledge and competencies needed to deal with a range of emergency first aid situations. The course will encourage staff to learn and practice together in simulated emergencies so they know exactly what to do.

Course content can be tailored to suit your particular requirements and is fully verifiable towards ongoing yearly CPD – it is based on guidelines and full requirements of the Resuscitation Council (UK), General Dental Council and the Care Quality Commission for safe and effective emergency care in a dental setting:

Identify and manage the most common types of medical emergency that may occur

Identify and manage patients of a higher risk of medical emergency during treatment

Identify and manage medications used in emergency situations

Evaluate and reflect on the knowledge and necessary skills to assist in a medical emergency

The course includes dealing with emergencies such as airway management, CPR, choking and common medical emergencies. We will simulate the use of resuscitation & emergency equipment in different areas of your practice such as the dental chair, waiting room and public reception areas with staff working and observing in teams in simulated triage, handover and transfer to the emergency medical services.

As registered nurses, we teach and simulate the use of emergency drugs using their actual real containers to add realism to the experience.
