About this Seminar

This seminar will be held at the state-of-the-art Clinical Learning Resource Centre on the University of Saskatchewan campus. This will provide an environment to apply practically the knowledge and skills learned. The morning session will consist of recertification of your CPR certificate or a simple refresher if your certification is still valid. In the afternoon session, we will role play common medical emergencies. This will concentrate on how to deal with them not only from agent management, but also from a communication perspective between front and back of house dental staff. This will give you knowledge and skills on how to deal with potential medical emergencies to provide best-practice patient care in these situations.
