License Renewal Seminar: UPDATED to include OSHA, Risk Management & Record Keeping
While the Florida Board requires 30 hours of CEU for dentists, 24 hours of CEU for hygienists and 18 hours of CEU for dental labs, every biennium in order to renew your Florida license, there are certain specific courses that the state requires for relicensure. This in-person course is designed to satisfy those requirements with the exception of “Safe and Effective Prescribing of Controlled Substances”.
Prevention of Medical Errors (2 CEU)*
This unit shall include a study of root cause analysis, error reduction and prevention, and patient safety. AGD# 159
Domestic Violence (2 CEU)**
Including information on the numbers of patients likely to be victims and/or predators in a professional’s practice, screening procedures for determining if a patient may have a history of being a victim or predator of domestic violence, and instruction
on how to provide patients with information on resources in the local community to help victims of domestic violence. AGD# 156
OSHA/Bloodborne Pathogens (1.5 CEU)
Annual infection control, bloodborne pathogen, and TB education is required by JCAHO, ACHA, and OSHA. It is also important for you to review your role in infection control at this time.
Many of the topics included are mandated by either licensing or accrediting agencies. The other topics are important for healthcare infection control and will clarify your role in Infection Control. AGD# 148
Risk Management & Record Keeping (1.5 CEU)
In this age of expanding theories of tort liability, dentists may be responsible for more than their own acts. Dentists have responsibility for the actions of their office staff and those whom they directly employ. Most dentists don’t realize that they may also be held responsible for any acts of their partners, office staff or others who may perform procedures under their control or supervision.
This course will help you understand the issues involved and what procedures to implement to judiciously practice dentistry. AGD# 550
