EDUCATIONAL OBJECTIVES & GOALS
This presentation is designed to prepare a dental audience to respond to a disaster, as a member of the health care community. They need to be able to react to the consequences of weapons of mass destruction (WMD), and additional disasters, due to all other hazards, both natural and accidental. Dentists must be familiar with the signs and symptoms of potential agents, and know how to protect the health and safety of themselves, their staff, patients and families. They should understand their possible role in the public health system's coordinated response. The presentation will review the clinical signs and symptoms, the patterns of possible exposure of the more likely agents, and the risk communication skills needed to help explain and clarify the following situations.
1. How the dental profession has the skills and training to enhance public health response to a potential disaster scenario.
2. How the dental profession can be integrated and engaged into the current public health emergency response system.
3. How there have been innovations and development of disaster training programs into the current dental school curriculum.
4. How dentists can best prepare for, respond and recover from a potential disaster in their private offices to protect themselves, their staff and patients.
5. How dentists decide alternative best practices during a disaster, such as whether to evacuate or "shelter in place."
The planned program includes the use of a PowerPoint presentation that will use a "scenario" approach to the material that will stimulate discussion and critical thinking.
