The British Association of Dental Nurses, the UK’s only professional association for dental nurses, is planning a series of Study Days offering verifiable CPD, the first two of which will be held on Saturday 7 June 2014 at the New Cavendish Club, Marble Arch, London W1.
The Joint Regional Study Day for dental nurses living and working in the London & South East and South Central Regions will include presentations on needlestick injury, oral cancer – from both the practitioner and patient perspectives - and smoking cessation. Speakers are Dawn Piper of Initial Medical, Elaine Tilling of TePe and Christine Piff of Let’s Face It. The Study Day will be hosted by BADN’s London & South East Regional Coordinator Sarah Pepper and South Central Regional Coordinator Hazel Coey.
The Practice Managers’ and Receptionists’ Study Day will feature Employment Law and CQC Compliance from Clive Oliver of Peninsula and Sylvie Sturrock respectively. The Study Day will be hosted by BADN’s Practice Management & Reception representative Monica Morrison.
Both Study Days will start at 9.30am, with registration at 9am, are open to both BADN member and non-member dental nurses, with a discounted fee of £15 for BADN members, and offer 4 ½ hours verifiable CPD. Both will be opened by BADN President Fiona Ellwood and are sponsored by dental hub Source1uk.
