Going Viral – A look at the changing management of Hepatitis C and HIV and the implications for dental care.
Needlestick Injury – A systematic Approach
Management of HIV and Hepatitis C has changed significantly over the last five years with significant reductions in morbidity and mortality. As is the case with many chronic illnesses there are implications within these treatments for long term oral health. The dental profession has a significant role to play in the education of patients on the availability of new treatments, the diagnosis of disease, and the prevention of oral health complications.
Needlestick Injury is avoidable and preventable with good clinical systems in place. However, should an injury occur an understanding of the risks of occupationally acquired infection and a standardized process for initial injury management and follow up should help to alleviate the fear and reduce risks. This presentation will look at implementing a standardized protocol in your practice to ensure the best management of needlestick injuries.
