Prevalence of medical emergency events in primary dental care within the UK

A research team, from Newcastle University, is undertaking a survey looking at the prevalence of medical emergency events and the confidence of the dental team managing them within primary dental care.

Their project is part of an NHS Health Education England North East (HEENE) research programme. Ethical approval has been granted by Newcastle University Research Ethics Committee.

They are aiming to reach a wide range of dentists, specialists and dental hygiene and/or therapists based in primary care, to ensure a representative sample is obtained. This includes those in general dental practice, specialist practice and community dental services. To help them reach all potential participants, they would be grateful if you could please complete a short online questionnaire, which should only take between 5-10 minutes.
