Course objectives:
-Build on the first presentation “Stone Age – Part I” to further
highlight how digitisation is changing the face of implant dentistry and how these “new” technologies can be harnessed to streamline treatment and increase profitability.

Part 2: 2018 ADA Policies and Recommendation on Substance Abuse Disorder

Credits: 1.5
Cost: Free
Time: 8:00 PM ET

On March 26, 2018, the American Dental Association (ADA) announced a new policy on opioids supporting mandates on prescription limits and requiring all dentists take continuing education to maintain a license to practice. Inherent in the 2018 resolutions is the encouragement to minimize the use of opioids. In dentistry, pain control would revolve around optimal use of non-steroidal anti-inflammatory drugs and acetaminophen. However, there are still circumstances where opioids are believed to be necessary.

This session is designed to use case examples to help illustrate the appropriate way of managing opioid prescription in order to minimize abuse.

Learning Objectives:

This will provide 1.5 credit hours that will satisfy the new requirements by addressing the following issues:

  1. Prescribing Controlled Substances
  2. Understanding Amount of Opioids Prescribed (Morphine Milligram Equivalent MME)
  3. Prescription Drug Monitoring Program (PDMP)

The world around us is changing at pace that most people never imagined and many are uncomfortable with. In many ways, what was once science fiction is now becoming reality. As health care providers, we must take an active role to understand the changes that are occurring around us so that we can prepare for the threats as well as potential opportunities.

The generation of children born since 2008 are growing up in world of constant access to information and on demand services. This generation will have different expectations of their healthcare providers and we must prepare for this changing world. This webinar will provide examples of this potential new world; however, more importantly it will show how we must think differently to capitalize on these disruptions.

Objectives:
1. Understand the growth of an on demand economy
2. Gain a sense of how big data will influence health care
3. Be exposed to new health care delivery model that are becoming possible as a result of technology innovation.
