Relative Analgesia Course, Monday, 22 February 2021

Relative Analgesia Course
This full day course for dentists, is presented in conjunction with ADASA and the Australian Society of Dental Anaesthesiology (ASDA).

The objective of the course is to enable participants to become proficient and confident in the administration of Relative Analgesia in clinical practice. The courses are endorsed by the Australian Society of Dental Anaesthesiology and provide an efficient introduction to dental Relative Analgesia. The courses are also an excellent refresher for dentists wishing to update their theoretical and practical skills in the delivery of Relative Analgesia. Participants will be given the opportunity to administer nitrous oxide-oxygen sedation to each other, and to experience for themselves the effects of RA in a safe environment.

ADASA and ASDA will adhere to COVID-19 restrictions in place to ensure the safety of participants attending this course.  Each participant will use a separate autoclavable circuit. Providing autoclavable circuits to those participating in training incurs significant cost and currently ASDA run courses, are the only ones in Australia to do so.

We value the opportunity in these challenging times to educate dentists on nitrous oxide training/sedation. This year we are fortunate to have ADA 2019 Congress lecturer, Dr Michael Walker (BDS, FPFA) to facilitate this course. Dr Walker has previously provided training in Singapore New Zealand and around Australia. He is a past President of ASDA, current Treasurer and is the University of Sydney lecturer for Diploma students in intravenous sedation and is the senior clinical associate and external examiner in intravenous sedation. He teaches dentists from across Australia the skills required for sedation dentistry. He will be joined by Dr Angelo Preketes, BDS, GradDipClinDentx2 (implants and sedation), Lecturer and Mentor University of Sydney Private Practitioner.
