Course content

This programme is intended for dental practitioners who want to develop competence in providing conscious sedation. The programme has been designed to allow you to gain experience of using inhalation sedation with nitrous oxide and oxygen, and midazolam. You will build your knowledge through distance learning modules and study days, while clinical skills will be developed during supervised clinical practice in Bristol. We aim to produce caring, knowledgeable and skilful practitioners who are competent in the provision of conscious sedation within the limits of the individual clinician.

Programme structure

This modular programme is divided in to three units: Local Anaesthesia, Anxiety Management and Clinical Conscious Sedation.

Local Anaesthesia
Pain and anxiety control are closely linked and treatments under sedation often need to be aborted because of inadequate local anaesthesia. The unit will update students in pharmacology and local anaesthetic techniques, introduce advanced local anaesthetic techniques and provide medical simulator training in the management of the complications of sedation.

Anxiety Management
This unit will provide students with a knowledge and critical understanding of the theoretical framework that underpins cognitive therapy, including self-help and behavioural approaches.

Clinical Conscious Sedation
This unit is designed to prepare those with no experience in conscious sedation to independent practice. It will include supervised clinical practice in Bristol, as well as distance learning and study days where practical skills will be introduced before beginning supervised clinical practice. The unit covers the syllabus on basic sedation techniques published in 2015 by the Intercollegiate Advisory Committee for Sedation in Dentistry.
