Caring for challenging and rewarding groups of patients means that we perform repetitive or straining tasks and occasionally find ourselves contorted in awkward postures. These have a huge consequence on our muscles and joints resulting in musculoskeletal disorders, repetitive strain injuries and ultimately a short career.
Join us on the evening of Thursday 18th November with Clare Kelly to identify stressors in your practice and learn the most effective techniques to counteract their consequences. this course is not only relevant to dental hygienists, nurses and dentists but also to carers for those with physical or intellectual disabilities.
