TCI, standing for Target Controlled Infusion, refers to a system by which a drug is given intravenously with a computer-controlled pump. It is a method that when used in sedation produces a safe, predictable and accurate outcome. It is in this context used to produce stable sedation for long or short cases and confers the ability to maintain the chosen level of sedation with more accuracy than an intermittent bolus technique, coupled with a rapid recovery. The pre requisite for this course is that the participant would need to be an experienced sedationist, preferably with experience in a multi drug technique and the desire to move to the next level of moderate procedural sedation. Participants will also need to have completed the SST (Safe Sedation Training) online program, free access to which is available via the sedation society.

There is a robust evidence base showing that burnout is now a global problem in healthcare. Overall, the evidence suggests that many clinicians worldwide will experience burnout in their careers and that burnout rates are rising. Burnout is linked with medicolegal risk. It impacts on quality of care, errors and harm and can contribute to a minimised empathic response. Physicians with burnout had more than twice the odds of self-reported medical error, after adjusting for speciality, work hours, fatigue and work unit safety rating. There is an effect on cognitive function such as memory and decision-making and an impact on colleagues, teams and the organisation. Increasing the resilience of clinicians, teams and organisations maximises the chances of optimum patient outcomes, reduces medicolegal risk and allows them to continue to practice safe and enjoyable clinical practice, despite increasing demands.

It wasn’t so long ago that to aesthetically enhance a smile one would turn to say a porcelain crown or porcelain veneer. This was costly—financially and more importantly biologically. It's amazing how times have changed with the versatility of composite. Through creative techniques we are now able to provide conservative and durable aesthetic solutions to a greater number of patients (even for the most aesthetically demanding). This lecture and hands-on workshop will focus on the creative use of composite to close diastema’s/dark triangles, and aesthetic enhancement of dark teeth using veneering techniques. Note: Participants must attend the morning lecture in order to register for the afternoon hands-on workshop.**

This 3-hr workshop is highly interactive in a virtual ZOOM environment. Target group: entire dental teams in mixed groups on ZOOM. Learning outcomes: In this Virtual Team workshop: Strengthening Team Culture, you will learn: • Why the reinvention of Team Culture has become a top priority for most companies in 2022. • What the key drivers for employee retention look like post-pandemic. • What other practices have to say about workplace culture. Learning through peer sharing/discussions. What do other practices do to increase consistency for patient care through a strong workplace culture? • What a flexible workplace could look like in a hybrid format. You will walk away with ideas that could make a dental practice become a more flexible workplace. The result of this is a workplace based on employee needs for flexible work arrangements. More motivation leads to less stress and therefore less risk of making mistakes in interactions with patients over the phone, in the reception area and in the clinical rooms. • Why the need for growth and development is becoming an even more critical driver for retention. Cross training of staff gives the practice a more flexible workforce as well as team members who are better skilled to answer clinical questions from patients in a more confident manner. • How you can recognise efforts and hard work by smaller tokens of gratitude and why this is so important. According to Dr Paul J Zak (Harvard Business Review 2017) one of the key drivers for more effective teamwork, is the need for recognition. Team members who feel valued, will release more oxytocin, and will perform better in all aspects of the dental work environment, both clinically and in terms of patient care. • How to build a stronger team through team well-being, b. Both mentally and physically. Learn from the experts within psychological safety and open communication. • Why effective leadership is crucial during The Great Retention. Further event information
