CDOs' RESPONSE TO IACSD STANDARDS (April 2016)
SAAD Board fully supports the IACSD Standards (April 2015) and strongly recommends that members comply with the new guidelines on training and clinical practice.
SAAD courses and the SAAD Safe Sedation Practice Scheme will continue to be aligned with the IACSD Standards as will our advice to members, professional indemnity organisations and other specialist societies.
This is a two-day course.
This course is designed to provide dental nurses with the knowledge, skills and attitudes, that, when followed by supervised clinical practice with an approved clinical supervisor, will enable them to assist an operator-sedationist during the provision of dental treatment under conscious sedation. The course is taught by some of the country’s most experienced sedation teachers. The course includes the main areas of sedation: intravenous, inhalational and oral. Most topics are covered by lectures, demonstrations and small group practical sessions. There are practical skill stations in venepuncture, monitoring and Basic Life Support. Detailed course notes are provided and students are encouraged to ask lots of questions! A certificate of attendance is awarded at the end of the course. This is a standalone course that can be attended by experienced sedation nurses as a refresher, or by 'new starters' as part of the SAAD Assessed Sedation Nurse scheme.
