The patient record is the single most important document that is used for managing a patient’s oral health. Complete records must document enough clinical data to support the diagnosis and treatment plan. This seminar will review the components of a comprehensive exam, including the use of current and diagnostic radiographs to asses a patient’s oral health status. Comprehensive treatment plans and well-written progress notes that support the recommended care for your patient will be reviewed. This seminar will help you assess your current dental record system. Case-based scenarios will lead to discussing the development of well- written progress notes and documentation of informed consent.
Opioid Prescribing Protocols
Canada is facing an increase in opioid related overdoses and death. Prescription opioid medications are no longer considered a low-risk option for relief of moderate-to-severe acute pain. If not prescribed responsibly, they can lead to misuse, abuse, addiction, overdose and death. Prior to prescribing a dentist must assess a patient’s risks of taking an opioid. Guidelines will be introduced to help in reducing the number of opioids prescriptions written. Case-based scenarios will facilitate discussion on appropriate opioid prescribing, and how to manage a potential pill seeking patient.
