Medical Emergencies in Dental Practice

All dental practice staff are advised to have regular training in how to deal with emergencies in the work place as stated by the General Dental Council 'Scope of Practice' in 2013:

'A patient could collapse on any premises at any time, whether they have received treatment or not. It is therefore essential that ALL registrants are trained in dealing with medical emergencies, including resuscitation, and possess up to date evidence of capability'

The team at Middlesex University have many years' experience of teaching dental staff both in the work place and in our purpose built skills lab in Hendon Campus and this study day meets the training requirements of both the GDC and the Resuscitation Council (UK) document on Quality Standards for CPR and training within primary dental care.
