Event description

Description

Join us along the scenic Yarra at Fenix Events in Richmond for our National Roadshow event on Saturday May 19th 2018. This half day event includes an exciting panel discussion with two Victorian members of parliament, Mary Wooldridge and Nina Pringle, discussing the future of healthcare in Victoria and a session on the proposed changes to scope of practice with our CEO, Melanie Hayes - these sessions will be very interactive and are not to be missed! Also we will have a presentation by Mr Shamus Breen from BMS, our National Indemnity Insurer, discussing strategies to reduce practice risk as well as an infection control seminar with Amanda Brown, that will ensure you protect both yourself and the public.


Infection Control Workshop: Amanda Brown

Is your infection control knowledge up-to-date? Do you meet the requirements of the National Law? As a registered dental practitioner, it is YOUR responsibility to ensure you practise in a way that maintains and enhances public health and safety – this includes knowing how to prevent or minimize the risk of the spread of infectious diseases. This hands-on workshop will explore what documentation is required for your practice and how to follow these critical guidelines, to protect both yourself and the public.


"Risky Business" BMS Insurance

Regular interaction with clients is a daily occurrence for Dental Hygienists and Oral Health Therapists. With this in mind, you may face situations where your clients claim an alleged breach in your professional duties. Beyond this, there are many other risks faced each day, therefore it’s important to have a strong understanding of professional indemnity insurance and ways to reduce practice risk. BMS’presentation will cover examples of industry claims, ways to reduce practice risk and key aspects of the professional indemnity insurance policy, as well as other products available exclusively to DHAA members.
