DAY ONE

Course Title: "2015 Dental Hygiene CE Club: Oral Health & Oral Health Care - How Does Gender Matter?"



Course Date:    
May 15, 2015

Course Speakers: 
Dr. Marita R. Inglehart
Dr. Eugene Ko
Dr. Carol Anne Murdoch-Kinch
Dr. Stephen Rassi
Dr. Domenica Sweier
Dr. Susan Taichman

Course Overview:
This course has an interdisciplinary team of researchers and dental educators will explore how gender affects dental patients' general health, oral health, oral health care needs and interactions with their dental care providers.  The morning session starts with an overview of gender differences in systemic and oral health, followed by an oral pathologist's perspective on gender differences and oral health concerns.  Two specific issues: Providing care for breast cancer survivors and for patients with eating disorders.

The afternoon session begins with a discussion of how patients' and the providers gender affects their interactions in the dental office.  Two content-specific presentations follow.  The first presentation focuses on depression which is twice as prevalent among women compared to men. The final presentation of the day offers an introduction to providing care for transgender patients by a therapist and researcher specialized in working with transgender patients.

Course Objectives:

At the completion of this course participants will have an increased understanding of the role of depression for patients' oral health and health care. Also, participants will have an increased understanding of the prevalence of low oral health literacy among the adult U.S. population, how to assess it, which consequences it has for patients' oral health and oral health-related behavior and how to communicate successfully with patients with low oral health literacy skills to avoid communication breakdowns.



DAY TWO


Course Title:
"2015 Dental Hygiene CE Club: Oral Health Literacy, Motivational Communication and Tobacco Cessation Counseling in the Dental Office


Course Date:
October 2, 2015

Course Speakers:
Dr. Marita R. Inglehart
Prof. Janet S. Kinney, RDH
Dr. Carol Anne Murdoch-Kinch
Dr. David Tindle

Course Overview:
The morning session introduces the participants to the topic of oral health literacy and how a motivational communication approach can prevent communication breakdowns.  Constructive communication among dental patients and providers is the basis for effective patient care. Avoiding communication breakdowns with the large percentage of patients with low oral health literacy skills is therefore crucial. This workshop introduces the participants to the topic of oral health literacy and how it affects patients’ oral health, increases their dental fear and influences their oral health-related behavior, such as making them more likely to miss their own appointments and their children’s.

The afternoon session applies the materials discussed in the morning session to efforts related to tobacco
cessation counseling. An introductory lecture will provide an overview of how the use of tobacco products
affects patients' general and oral health and which tobacco cessation efforts are most successful. A specific introduction to pharmacological approaches to tobacco cessation efforts will follow.  The focus of this presentation
is to inform the participants about which medications are available and how to determine which patients might benefit from these medications.  The final presentation provides a hands-on training of how to engage patients in motivational
communication related to tobacco cessation efforts.  Videotaped patient-provider interactions will be used to demonstrate this approach.

Course Objectives:
At the completion of this course participants will have an increased understanding of how to engage in motivational
communication with their patients.  They will specifically have a sound understanding of the importance of content considerations as well as process considerations related to motivational communication. 

Participants will also have an increased knowledge concerning:

  • How the use of tobacco products affects patients' general and oral health and which approaches to tobacco cessation counseling are most effective.
  • Which pharmacological approaches are available and which medications can be supportive of tobacco cessation efforts.
  • How to collect the necessary information from patients about their use of tobacco products to allow a tailored approach to counseling
  • How to use motivational communication strategies to increase patients' willingness to consider/engage in tobacco cessation related efforts.

P624-15 
Course Title:     The Role of the Dental Hygienist in our Changing Health Care Landscape: Expanding Opportunities

Course Date: October 11, 2015 (Sunday) 


Featured Speakers:

Ann Battrell, RDH, MS, Executive Director of the American Dental Hygienists’ Association (ADHA) will focus her presentation on how the dental hygienist can be positioned within our new health care landscape. As executive director, Ms. Battrell plays a pivotal role in representing the dental hygiene profession to governmental bodies, educational institutions, other related associations, and corporate partners.

H. Luke Shaefer, PhD, Assistant Professor, University of Michigan School of Social Work will speak on the ever increasing diversity of our population, including the number of those who are living on the margin. Dr. Shaefer’s research focuses on the effectiveness of the United States’ social safety net in serving low-wage workers and economically disadvantaged families. In addition he has explored strategies for increasing access to oral health care in the United States.

Colleen Brickle, EdD, RDH, RF, Dean of the Division of Health Sciences at Normandale Community College, will provide insight on dental hygiene direct access and emerging workforce models and the opportunities they present to address access to oral health care.

She was instrumental in establishing Metropolitan State University’s master’s level Advanced Dental Therapy Program that requires those enrolled to be dental hygienists with a bachelor’s degree. She will also provide insight on the impact these workforce models are having on access to care.
