RADIOGRAPHY AND RADIATION PROTECTION: AN UPDATE

This talk will provide an update on the risks associated with ionising radiation, looking at the doses of dental radiographs and CBCT, and comparing these doses to the doses from common medical imaging procedure and other sources of radiation in our environment. Practical tips will be provided on how to optimise doses to patients. An update will also be provided on the IRMER 2017 and IRR 2017 legislation, with a focus on the latest, second edition “Guidance Notes for Dental Practitioners on the Safe Use of X-ray Equipment.”

Learning objectives

  • To understand the risks associated with ionising radiation
  • To have knowledge of the doses from dental radiographs and CBCT
  • To have knowledge of the legislation relevant to the use of ionising radiation in the dental setting and the most up to date guidelines

This talk satisfies the GDC’s learning outcomes:

C – Maintenance and development of knowledge and skill within your field of practice

D – Maintenance of skills, behaviours and attitudes which maintain patient confidence in you and the dental profession and put patients’ interests first

WHAT’S NEW IN INFECTION CONTROL AND PREVENTION IN DENTISTRY?

Following the covid pandemic we are back on track and doing what we do best.  In this presentation Jo Russell will be looking at where we are now, immunisations needed, the chain of infection and more importantly, how we break it. NICE say that all healthcare professionals should be trained on spotting the signs of sepsis and deal with onward referral so we will be looking at how we can easily identify sepsis and manage the condition.  The talk will conclude with hand hygiene, the importance of getting it right and what we are trying to remove.

Learning objectives

By the end of the presentation delegates will:

  • Comprehend the basic requirements for good decontamination practice
  • Think about immunisations
  • Consider the correct use of PPE
  • Spot the signs of sepsis
  • Revisit hand hygiene

MOUTH AND OROFACIAL CANCER – WHERE ARE WE IN 2023?

It has been generally accepted that the incidence of mouth cancer within the UK population has consistently been increasing each year over the past three decades.   However, in 2022 it became apparent, as predicted by the dental profession, that the reduced access to clinical services during Covid-19 pandemic would result in a greater number of patients subsequently presenting with relatively large tumours and increased metastatic spread to the lymph nodes in the neck.   Both these features of mouth cancer are associated with a poor outcome.  In 2023, never has an effective dental examination, in particular a head and neck soft tissue examination, been so important for the public.  The updated Delivering Better Oral Health guidance for the UK contains sections related to mouth cancer to hopefully address these problems, in addition to presenting clinical actions required for cancer prevention going forward into 2023.  All dental professionals should also be able to recognise the different forms of skin cancer that may develop in the facial tissues or within the neck and be able to refer suspected malignancies to secondary healthcare services.

Learning objectives:

Following the presentation delegates will:

  • Have an indication of their ability to recognise orofacial cancer (via an inter-active quiz)
  • Be able to accurately record benign and malignant mucosal abnormalities
  • Have an understanding of the prevention and management of mucosal epithelial dysplasia
  • Have increased awareness of the importance of potentially malignant disorders
  • Know how to optimally refer patients with suspected cancer to secondary care in 2023
