Infection Control in the Era of Covid-19 is organized by Maryland State Dental Association (MSDA) and will be held on Nov 09, 2022. This course has been approved for a maximum of 3 CE.
The cluster of severe pneumonia cases caused by a novel coronavirus first reported in Wuhan, China in December of 2019 has now circled the globe. To date, millions of cases have been reported and the number of cases in the USA as well as worldwide is increasing at an alarming rate. The cause of these infections was shortly identified as a novel coronavirus similar to the SARS coronavirus that emerged in 2003. Although similar to SARS this new virus has been identified as a novel, never reported virus now called SARS-CoV-2. This virus causes severe acute respiratory syndrome in some patients and this disease has been named COVID-19 (coronavirus disease-2019). Unfortunately, this virus is capable of very efficient person-to-person transmission and was declared a pandemic by March 2020. The alarming spread of this infection in the USA has had a dramatic adverse impact on dental practice. This program will provide dental providers with the latest information on the epidemiology, testing, treatment, and management of COVID-19. The latest COVID-19 vaccines and vaccination strategies will be discussed. Additionally, this program will provide dental providers with the latest information on the management of COVID-19 in the dental office. Paramount to controlling this pandemic are the principles of respiratory hygiene and cough etiquette and enhancements in respiratory protection that may need to be implemented. Emphasis will be placed on compliance issues and how a practical, cost-effective “safe workplace” can be achieved in 2022. This course fulfills CDE requirements for infection control and requirements for annual OSHA training.
Additional details will be posted as soon as information is available.
