When ‘yes’ means ‘maybe’ – are you actually a yes? Are you complying with your statutory requirements for Infection Prevention and Control? When you tick ‘yes’ on your APC, do you mean ‘yes’, or are you a ‘maybe’? How would you fare if the practice you work in (you) was audited tomorrow?

When ‘yes’ means ‘maybe’ – are you actually a yes? Are you complying with your statutory requirements for Infection Prevention and Control? When you tick ‘yes’ on your APC, do you mean ‘yes’, or are you a ‘maybe’? How would you fare if the practice you work in (you) was audited tomorrow? Every individual clinician has a responsibility to ensure the required infection prevention and control protocols are being adhered to, in the practice where they work. The NZDA Code of Practice: Infection Prevention and Control in Dental Practice, was created to assist you to comply with your professional, legal and ethical obligations. Infection Prevention – it’s simple (or certainly can be)! In this half day lecture we look at a pro-active approach to contemporary infection prevention including your accountability and responsibility and knowing how infection prevention is achieved in your practice. Whether you are a business owner or an employee clinician, you will gain an understanding of what it really means to ‘tick the boxes’ and learn how you can empower your team to drive compliance with you at the helm. A common-sense approach that translates the required expectations of AS/NZS 4187:2014 and AS/NZ4815:2006 (as applicable) DCNZ Infection Prevention and Control Practice Standard (March 2016) and NZDA - Code of Practice / Infection Prevention and Control in Dental Practice (August 2015) into effective and efficient workflow implementation. Our ultimate objective is to provide all dental practices, regardless of size, the knowledge and ability to implement practical everyday protocols to create optimum infection prevention and sterilisation management in their practice. Compliance requires a team approach, so this session will be suitable for the entire dental team.

It is acknowledged that our population is ageing and keeping their natural teeth longer, and along with this there is an increasing expectation by patients that they will retain their natural dentition into their senior years.

It is acknowledged that our population is ageing and keeping their natural teeth longer, and along with this there is an increasing expectation by patients that they will retain their natural dentition into their senior years. Multimorbidity including physical, medical and cognitive impairments can adversely affect the oral health of our older patients, and our ability to deliver their oral health care requirements. With the silver tsunami already upon us, the question facing dental providers is, how can we as a profession meet the oral health needs of our older patients? This presentation has been designed to give you a comprehensive overview of the issues associated with delivering care for our older population with individualised restorative management protocols that provide pragmatic outcomes and take into consideration the person’s abilities and tolerance, and the need to be less invasive and less costly. It will focus on the preservation and restoration of tooth structure and how in general dental practice we can assist our patients to retain, and where necessary, restore their teeth to ensure an ongoing healthy, functional and aesthetic dentition. Topics to be covered include: • Who are older patients? - oral health status and treatment needs of older people • Special needs and multimorbidity associated with older people including physical limitations, medical co-morbidities and cognitive impairments • The Seattle Care Pathway for securing oral health in older patients - prevention and shared-care dental delivery • Protecting exposed root surfaces – reducing sensitivity and improving aesthetics • Root surface caries – is it manageable? • Patient friendly procedures – managing the frail and dependent patient • The hopeless tooth – to restore or extract? • Managing the deep interproximal margin • Direct and indirect approaches to management of compromised teeth
