CPD for Dental Nurses
Online verifiable CPD for dental nurses, including core topics, is available here to dentaljuce members. Dental nurses are the backbone of modern dentistry. The complexity of current systems and procedures makes effective dentistry impossible without a well trained professional nurse. In the UK this has been recognised by the General Dental Council, who created the Dental Nurse's Register.
Most of the juce on this web site is useful for all the team - one can never learn too much about one's profession! But there are many pages that are especially suitable for nurses as part of their verifiable CPD.
These pages cover the emergencies you are likely to face in the dental practice. It lets you know how to spot the at-risk patients, and how you can prevent emergencies from arising.
The pages include : Emergency Drug Kit, The ABCDE Assessment, CPR, Adrenal Insufficiency, Allergies, Anaphylaxis, Angina, Asthma, Choking and Aspiration, Epileptic Seizure, Hypoglycaemia, Myocardial Infarction, Syncope (fainting), and a Patient Scenario.
