Dental Management of Patients with Common Medical Conditions with Dr. Patrick Quaranta is organized by New Jersey Health Professionals Development Institute (NJHPDI) and will be held on Aug 14, 2020 at New Jersey Health Professionals Development Institute, River Edge, New Jersey, United States of America. Accreditation: CE Credits: 6 Course Description: Advances in medical technology and pharmaceuticals have enabled patients who hitherto were treated only in hospital based dental clinics, to seek care at our private dental practices. Also, the “baby-boomer” generation, one of the largest population demographics in the country, is at an age where chronic medical problems are extremely common. Many excellent dental schools have myriad technical “competencies” to be learned and thus, relatively little curriculum time is devoted to medically complex patients. This course will systematically address and review the statistically most common medical conditions that will be presented by ambulatory patients coming to our practices. The dental management and pharmaceutical implications of these patients will be addressed and safety issues will be emphasized. The propriety, usefulness, indication for, and formulation of medical consultation will also be discussed. Finally, the relatively few patients who seek care in our private practices but should instead, be referred to hospital based dental programs will be identified. Learning Objectives: At the completion of this course, the participant will: • Be able to confidently assess and manage ambulatory dental patients with cardiovascular disease, diabetes, COPD, bleeding disorders and on anticoagulant therapy, hepatitis, HIV, organ transplants and osteoporosis • Understand the use of medical guidelines, current antibiotic prophylaxis, and the limitations of guidelines • Be able to understand the precautions to be taken with patients on medications that manage their conditions and the interactions with these drugs and the drugs that we may prescribe • Be able to generate a useful and appropriate medical consultation and be able to know if medical consultation is actually needed • How to take a relevant medical history and what to do with the information we obtain • Be able to identify patients that can be treated in the private practice dental office and those that should be referred to a hospital based dental setting Event Categories: Oral Medicine / Oral Diagnosis / Oral Pathology, Special Patient Care
