All About Tuberculosis Infection Control In The Dental Healthcare Settings

When it comes to Tuberculosis Infection Control In The Dental Healthcare Settings and Dental CE Courses, Health Management Solutions Inc. understands that Dental Health Care Professionals (DHCP) face a professional dilemma. DHCP are not in a position to diagnose the disease; however, they are held accountable by the Department of Health for following the Center for Disease Control’s guidelines on screening and reporting patients with “potential” TB Infection.  Therefore, our TB continuing education course addresses the DHCP’s responsibilities and concerns, as it relates to their particular profession.

The last thing a DHCP wants is not to follow proper TB Infection Control Guidelines and to face potential fines from the Department of Health, and/or have a disciplinary sanction, as a result, for not properly screening and reporting “potential” patients with TB Infection. Health Management Solutions, Inc’s professionals, are committed to make DHCP completely understand what are their professional responsibilities. Our Continuing Education Professionals offer a comprehensive presentation addressing all of the requirements and guidelines a DHCP must follow.

We Feature Competitive Dental CE Courses

Our TB Infection Control course goal is to raise the DHCP’s level of understanding of  the transmission risk of Tuberculosis in the dental healthcare setting, and to introduce the practitioner to established laws requiring administrative and engineering measures to prevent and or reduce TB infection; and to have the licensee recognize their employees and patients screening guidelines, reporting responsibilities and liabilities for failing to implement and comply with required engineering control measures; and learn how to implement administrative protocols for the prevention of TB transmission in the dental healthcare setting.
