A formal education and training course that fulfils the mandatory DCNZ requirements for education and training in the Sedation Practice Standard from 1st October 2019. This will enable you to gain certified competency to monitor sedated patients. It is designed for the whole dental team who monitor sedated patients, either with minimal experience or needing an introduction to capnography. It does not teach you how to sedate patients. Primarily designed for Dental Assistants, but Dentists are welcome to attend. The course will involve a full day of lectures, demonstrations and hands-on training leading to certification. Participants will gain an understanding of: • The definitions of minimal, moderate, and deep sedation; and general anaesthesia. • That the transition from complete consciousness through the various stages of sedation to general anaesthesia is a continuum and not a set of discrete well-defined stages. • The risks associated with sedation. And deeper knowledge in: • Anatomy and physiology of the respiratory, cardiovascular and central nervous systems in relation to sedation. • How to monitor the sedated patient - physical and physiological monitoring including the central nervous system, respiratory and cardiovascular systems, and necessary equipment – appropriate for the technique(s) and drugs being used, and the intended level of sedation. • How to identify sedation-related complications; and when to advise the ‘sedationist’ or ‘operator-sedationist’ of any abnormalities or concerns, and initiate or assist in the management of a medical emergency.

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.

Don’t miss this rare opportunity to attend a life-changing workshop! Would you like to be more effective and successful with your patient and dental team interactions? Join us for a highly engaging and experiential 4-hour workshop. Take part in the interactive, thought-provoking group exercises, and come away with tools and techniques that you can immediately apply both within your practice and your personal life, to effect positive change. The DiSC model provides a common language that people can use to better understand themselves and to adapt their behaviours with others — within your dental practice, your work team, leadership positions, or other relationships. Everyone you come across in life is motivated differently, communicates differently, and views tasks and relationships differently. Your individual personality affects your everyday actions and behaviours. Find out the secrets to get along with everyone, even if you are not a ‘people person’. Learning outcomes: - Increase your self-awareness: identify your ‘blind spots’, how you respond to conflict, what motivates you, what causes you stress, and how you solve problems - Learn to value your strengths as well as those of others - Understand how others are different and how to work with each personality or behavioural style - Facilitate better teamwork, communication and build a team that appreciates the style of others and works well together - Develop yourself and others to be their best – ‘win-win’ situation

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.
