Clinical Records and Consent

Overview

Comprehensive dental clinical records are important to avoid the risks in disciplinary or legal action and also play a vital role in the provision of the best care to your patients. 


Many dentists find their obligations around consent complicated and confusing. Do your current consent procedures meet recommended requirements?


This course will provide you with the tools to minimise risks associated with the issues of record keeping and consent. The teaching aspect of the course will include assessment and didactic presentations. 


Topics include

Record keeping

The Program is based around the ‘Guidelines on Clinical Records’ provided by the Dental Board of Australia and addresses the deficiencies commonly found in practitioner knowledge and practice.


Participants will have the opportunity to provide up to de-identified patient records for quality assessment prior to attending the course.


Consent

Participants will need to provide their current documentation used for the consent and a narrative of current process for obtaining valid consent.


Assessment will be achieved by a multiple-choice examination.
