This is an annual refresher course for those who are already endorsed, conscious sedation practitioners. This course focuses on improving the day-to-day practice of IV and other sedation by providing dental sedationists with information on changes in sedation practice, pharmacology and techniques. It provides you and your registered nurse the opportunity to manage sedation and its associated emergencies in a controlled environment using simulation. The assessment also confirms correct techniques in the preparation and conduct of sedation and the management of adverse events including the use of basic and advanced life support in the management of respiratory and cardiac arrest. The course operates under Chatham House rules and no assessment materials other than the final results are retained by the course managers. All audiovisual material is deleted at the end of the course during the final course wrap up. This course has been approved by the Dental Board of Australia.
