Event description
This course takes place over two evenings the 20th June and 21st June 2022

About this event

The aim of this course is to provide continuing education and training in all aspects of dental radiography as part of life-long learning for referrers, practitioners and operators who carry out all or part of the practical aspects associated with a radiographic examination.  This course will also provide continue education for the safety of all staff working in a practice/department where ionising radiation is in use.

 

Objectives

  • To explain the principles of radiation physics, and the risks of ionising radiation in dental radiography.
  • To consider radiation doses in dental radiography and factors affecting dose.
  • To discuss the statutory responsibilities for IRR17 & IR(ME)R17 by examining current UK legislation and guidelines governing the use of ionising radiation in dentistry.
  • Consider the principles of radiation protection.
  • To provide information on the requirements of quality assurance systems, medico-legal dental radiography, record keeping and clinical audit.

 

 

Learning Outcomes

  • Describe the fundamentals of radiation physics, and the risk/benefits and biological effects of radiation, so as to demonstrate knowledge of hazard associated with exposure.
  • Summarise the factors affecting radiation doses received by patients and staff in dental radiology, and outline attendant quality assurance systems, so as to demonstrate theoretical ability to minimise risks and ensure the consistent quality of radiographs.
  • Outline general points of current UK legislation and guidance governing the use of ionising radiation in dentistry, so as to demonstrate awareness of statutory responsibilities.
  • Summarise the principles of radiation protection, so as to demonstrate theoretical ability regarding the safe use of radiographs in dental practice.
  • Recognise and describe key aspects of radiography quality assurance framework, so as to implement effective strategies in own
