We all get introduced to the HTM 01-05 very early on in our careers, and it helps us to achieve at least essential practice (and, hopefully, best practice) standards during our infection prevention and control (IPC) procedures. This is something that is crucial if we want to keep our patients, and ourselves, safe. But with all of the guidance and procedures to follow, how do you ensure that the whole team is being consistent in their IPC standards?
As dedicated dental nurses, we play an invaluable role in patient care and oral health. This November, we have a unique opportunity to make a real difference in our patients' lives by participating in Oral Cancer Awareness Month. Let's explore how we can get involved and raise awareness about the importance of regular dental check-ups for early problem identification.
