Topics include extractions and implants, failure to diagnose, nerve injury, and patient selection and management considerations. There are no prerequisites.
Objectives:
 Apply clinical risk management strategies to improve patient safety, mitigate associated risk factors, and reduce  untoward outcomes and malpractice claims
 Implement strategies to help prevent failure to diagnose allegations
 Recognize the potential effect technology and applied risk management can have on mitigating
and managing nerve injury
