Mid-Atlantic Prevent Abuse and Neglect Through Dental Awareness is a continuing education course designed to educate dentists, dental hygienists, dental assistants and others about the problems of child abuse and neglect, domestic violence, elder abuse and neglect, and human trafficking. This course aims to teach dental and other health care professionals to recognize the indicators of abuse and neglect and inform them of their legal and ethical responsibilities in reporting and referring victims. Abuse and neglect are an ever-increasing problem in today’s society. Dental professionals are frequently the first health care professional to render treatment to a maltreated individual, yet make few reports. The more education you receive, the more likely you are to recognize and report. Early recognition with timely reporting and referrals to appropriate agencies can help prevent more significant health consequences and even death in maltreated individuals. This course (session one and session two) satisfies the 2 hour continuing education requirement on abuse and neglect as mandated by COMAR: Subtitle 44 BOARD OF DENTAL EXAMINERS 10.44.22 Continuing Education Authority: Health Occupations Article, §4-205,Annotated Code of Maryland.
