Briefing paper No: 2.
‘Safe sedation practice for healthcare procedures. An update’.
Please note the Academy of Medical Royal Colleges document, ‘Safe Sedation Practice for Healthcare Procedures. An Update’ has been amended to clarify the position for dental procedures carried out under dental conscious sedation in primary and secondary care settings.
The relevant sections are on page 3, final paragraph, and on page 8, that updates the reference.
'These recommendations are primarily intended for the use of hospitals and clinics in which sedation for non-dental procedures is given. Dental sedationists practising in primary or secondary care settings should ensure that standards of practice are in accordance with those detailed in guidance published by the Intercollegiate Advisory Committee for Sedation in Dentistry (IACSD).5'
