Although medical emergencies are rare occurrence the dental team need to be prepared for such an eventuality. This module provides the dental team with the necessary knowledge and skills to manage an emergency such as chest pain, asthma, anaphylaxis or a seizure. The module is built around three principles of prevention, preparation and finally practice. The presentation also emphasises the importance of teamwork and communication skills between the clinical and non-clinical members of the dental team.
