DescriptionThe Conscious Sedation for Dental Nurses CPD course is suitable for qualified and GDC registered dental nurses who assist in the surgery during routine conscious sedation.
Additional information

The course will be held in Education Wing of University of Liverpool Dental School, between January 2019 and June 2019, and consists of 6 study days, the dates for which are as follows:

  • Friday 18th January 2019
  • Friday 15th February 2019
  • Friday 22nd March 2019
  • Thursday 18th April 2019
  • Friday 17th May 2019
  • Friday 7th June 2019
  • Friday 12th July 2019 – Exam date

It is strongly recommended that delegates attend all study days in order to be prepared for the examination.

This course is demanding, but rewarding, and will require the delegate to invest a considerable amount of time in personal study and preparation work. Regular revision is required over the 6 month period leading to the University of Liverpool examination. Delegates will need support from the clinical teams with whom they work.

You will be required to compile and maintain a Clinical Portfolio. You will be required to assist during various aspects of both Intravenous and Inhalation Sedation under supervision by a suitably qualified GDC registrant. They will be responsible for assessing your ability to carry out various tasks either in your own dental clinic/practice, or at another sedation practice and providing feedback on your development. You must also have a designated mentor from within your practice, who will be able to offer support and advice during the course, and who can help with access to the relevant clinical experience. It is a course requirement that you have a valid ILS certificate for the duration of the course.

If you cannot confirm guaranteed IV/Inhalation sedation placements, giving details of the practices in your application form, your application for this course will be unsuccessful. Frequent access to managing patients under BOTH Inhalation sedation and IV midazolam sedation is mandatory. The Dental School cannot arrange for this chair side clinical experience. Application packs will be sent out in September 2018.

Course Fee

The course fee, which covers attendance at all 6 study days and the exam fee, is £885.00. However, if the practice/clinic, in which you are employed, treats predominately NHS patients and is located within the boundaries of Health Education England North West there is a subsidy of £210.00 towards your course fee by Health Education England. This will reduce the fee to £675.00.
