Postgraduate Certificate Clinical Conscious Sedation and Anxiety Management

This programme is for dental practitioners wishing to develop competence in the provision of conscious sedation and anxiety management.

The programme will equip you with the knowledge and skills to feel confident in the provision of conscious sedation and in anxiety management.

It will allow you to gain experience of the use of inhalation sedation with nitrous oxide and oxygen, and with midazolam. Your knowledge will be developed through distance learning modules and study days.

Clinical skills will be acquired during supervised clinical practice in Bristol, and as you progress through the certificate you will gain a greater understanding of pharmacological and non-pharmacological pain and anxiety control.

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