A Practical IRMER18 and IRR17 Update for Dentists and Radiographically Qualified Dental Care Professionals

Aims & Objectives:

The aim of the course is to comply with GDC requirements and provide recommended verifiable CPD for the participants. It will cover many of the key points of the new regulations, IRMER 2018 and IRR17, increasing the confidence of Dentists and radiographically qualified Dental Care Professionals when taking dental radiographs and updating their knowledge of factors relating to quality assurance in dental radiography.

Part of the afternoon will be hands on positioning with hints and tips on how to deal with many of the problems that dentists and radiographically qualified DCPs face day to day in practice and in the public dental service when taking radiographs.

Learning Outcomes:

1) Be aware of their responsibilities under current IRMER18 and IRR17 legislation with clarification of the regulations as they relate to dental practice.

2) Understand the different types of digital systems available and how to overcome practical issues when working with them in practice.

3) Have a better understanding of the requirements needed to maintain a processor which consistently provides high quality images.

4) Be more confident in dealing with patients presenting with technical radiographic challenges and have an increased knowledge of positioning for intra and extra oral radiographic images.
