Ethical Issues in Oral Cancer & Teen Pregnancy
Member Price: $49.00
CE Credit(s): 1
Retail Price: $69.00
Course Created on: 03/30/2012
/education/ViewCourse.aspx?id=107|32568
Description:

These two videos offer strategies for dealing with two different sensitive topics in healthcare.  Oral Cancer: It’s Not Just for Smokers Anymore! helps viewers understand how the traditional patient profile for oral cancer is changing and more difficult to predict.  The Pregnant Teen Dental Patient demonstrates the differences between patient confidentiality and privacy.  Both videos provide support for dental care while helping the dentist protect their practice against legal and ethical issues.

The content offers questioning techniques and simulated patient conversations to help guide dentists through difficult but necessary conversations.  Because patients might see dentists more often than their physicians, these videos help dentists in their role as the front line of defense in working with sensitive issues.

  1. Discover patient teaching moments through explorative questioning
  2. Review legal and ethical issues with minor patients
  3. Examine referral protocols for oral cancer and pregnancy
