A webinar offered by American Dental Association (ADA).
About the Webinar:
This webinar outlines useful strategies for reducing dentists’ frustration and inappropriate prescribing. Attendees will be provided suggested treatment contracts, health history forms, and examples of correspondences. We will discuss how the dental team members can help by changing the language they use when discussing pain medication. We will touch upon how to interact with pain specialists and addiction specialists. We’ll also present a step-by-step approach when asked for a specific opioid prescription.
The previous PCSS-O webinars presented by the American Dental Association have provided the scientific basis underlying this area of clinical practice. Therefore, this webinar builds upon this knowledge by outlining how to put that knowledge into everyday practice.
