Family Violence: Implications for New York Dental Patients and Practice, Updated 1st Edition

Price: $29.95 Hours:3 Contact Hours
Item # L0722  

Release Date: February 1, 2013

Revised Date: January 15, 2016

Expiration Date: January 14, 2019

Individuals of all age groups can be affected by family violence. Family violence includes child abuse and neglect, intimate partner violence, as well as abuse and neglect of disabled persons, vulnerable adults, and the elderly. Approximately 75% of physical abuse involves injuries to the head, neck, and mouth. Orofacial injuries resulting from family violence are often easy to identify in the dental setting. This basic-level course will enable all members of the dental team to recognize the physical and behavioral signs and symptoms of family violence, differentiate indicators of trauma from normal conditions or accidental injuries, and easily adapt clinical protocols to include identification and intervention for victims of family violence. By applying their knowledge of symptomology and providing appropriate intervention, every member of the dental team can help stem the epidemic of family violence. This course contains legislative information, statistics, and resources specific to the State of New York.

Price: $39.95 Hours:4 Contact Hours
Item # L0732

During the delivery of dental care, both patients and dental healthcare workers can be exposed to a wide array of infectious diseases, including HIV/AIDS, hepatitis B, hepatitis C, influenza, and numerous other viral and bacterial infections. If recommended infection control practices are not followed for each and every patient contact, transmission of infection will occur. In order to minimize the risk of transmission of infectious disease, discipline-specific infection-control guidelines have been published. It is incumbent upon all dental healthcare providers to understand and comply with the principles of infection control whenever and wherever they provide treatment to a patient.

This basic-level course reviews published guidelines and principles of infection control and outlines the methods that can be used to effectively break the chain of infection, including the use of work practice controls, barriers and/or personal protective equipment, and practices of effective cleaning, disinfecting, and sterilization. This course focuses on the six core elements of infection control required by the state of New York and is relevant to all dentists, dental hygienists, and dental assistants.

Western Schools designates this activity for 4 continuing education credits.

Periodontal Disease: Pathophysiology, Risk Factors, and Systemic Links, 2nd Edition

Price: $29.95 Hours:3 Contact Hours
Item # L0780  

Release Date: July 31, 2013

Review Date: September 9, 2016

Expiration Date: September 8, 2019

Periodontal disease is the primary cause of tooth loss in adults. Nearly half of all adults age 30 and older in the United States suffer from periodontal disease; the incidence of periodontal disease increases as people age, with approximately 70% of adults age 65 and older having the disease. The prevalence of periodontal disease varies among ethnic groups and between genders. Increased incidence of periodontal disease has been linked to poverty, lower levels of education, and smoking.

The symptoms of periodontal disease range from those that are nearly undetectable by the patient to those that are severe and alarming. All too often, periodontitis is a silent destroyer of oral health because pain is absent unless an acute infection occurs.

This basic-level course reviews the risk factors associated with periodontal disease, and discusses the potential links between periodontal disease and systemic conditions, such as diabetes, obesity, coronary heart disease, osteoporosis, and rheumatoid arthritis. The course describes the etiology and pathophysiology of periodontal disease, focusing on microbiology, viral causes, the autoimmune and inflammatory response, resident and infiltrating cells of the periodontium, and matrix metalloproteinases. The course prepares dental professionals to recognize periodontal disease and take steps to prevent this condition and to treat patients who already have or are at risk for developing periodontal disease.
