Free webinar: My patient has cancer, how can I help?

Tuesday, 28th January 2020, 8.00pm

The Irish Society for Disability and Oral Health is proud to present the second of this season’s ISDH Winter Webinars series. This webinar is delivered by experts with a unique perspective on this topic. Meera Shah is a dentist with a background in special care dentistry, and offers a rare insight from a dentist living with incurable cancer. Meera is joined by her colleague Elizabeth Gonzales Malaga, STR in Special Care Dentistry at Northamptonshire Healthcare Foundation Trust, and a Clinical Fellow for East Midlands NHS Foundation Trust.

After the webinar, it is expected that participants will be able to:

  • understand the lived experience of cancer diagnosis from a dental perspective;

  • apply tips and tricks to make life easier for patients diagnosed with cancer; and,

  • understand the impact of osteoradionecrosis (ORN) and how it can be prevented.
