Event Details

Course overview

Patients in your practice will present with an array of complicated medical conditions. Many will be taking a long list of prescription and non-prescription drugs. In addition, new medications and changes to legislation require you to keep up to date to ensure effective patient care.

This online course developed by Dr Geraldine Moses will provide clinicians with a comprehensive update for safer prescribing and drug use in dental practice. The day is comprised of five key presentations: update on safe prescribing, medications that impact on dental procedures, dealing with patients who claim a drug allergy, tailored pain management and medication adherence.


  • Update on medication safety and safe prescribing
  • Medications that impact on dental procedures
  • Managing patients who claim drug allergy
  • Drugs don’t work in people who don’t take them – update on medication
  • Tailoring pain management to the individual patient
