Event Details

The Australian Dental Association (NSW Branch) is proud to support the University of Newcastle’s B Oral Health Therapy (12390) program. This Infection Prevention and Control (IPC) lecture forms part of the mandatory pre-placement requirements for students moving forward to pass their degrees.

This lecture will focus on the key elements of managing COVID-19 risk while it remains in our community, which could be for some time yet, and reveal the top areas of opportunity to improve IPC processes based on performance-based data and insights gained as the peak body for the profession.

In this three hour lecture, 2nd year students will:

• Revisit the foundational concepts of Infection Prevention and Control (IPC)

• How to practise safely in a COVID-19 world and applying a risk based approach

• Learn why IPC is a priority for the dental profession – not just dentists

• Understand the regulatory framework that registered dental practitioners work within

• Recognise healthcare consumer expectations for IPC – what are they looking for?

• Learn how to interpret and follow the University’s Oral Health Clinic IPC Policies

• Understand changes to Personal Protective Equipment – what have we learned with COVID-19?

• Revisit the single most important factor to reduce healthcare association infections.
