16 DECEMBER 2011 KEEP UP WITH THE LATEST DEVELOPMENTS VIA ADAinteract-CPD webinars The ADAinteract-CPD Rural and Remote Webinar Program is a great way to build knowledge, learn about the latest developments in dental technology as well as earn CPD hours without leaving your home or practice. All you need is a computer with Internet connection. The monthly webinars continue to provide an excellent opportunity for rural and remote dental professionals to expand their knowledge and skills. Participants experience an audio visual presentation in real time with the ability to ask the topic presenter questions. The following is a summary of the online ADAinteract-CPD Rural and Remote Webinar presentations held in September and October. dEnTAL CARE In OUR AGEInG COMMUnITY Held on 22 September 2011, Dr Christopher Hodge presented on the topic ‘Dental care in our ageing community’. Since 1984, Christopher has been actively involved with the provision of dental care to residents in over 42 aged care facilities throughout South Australia. He has increased the scope of his practice to include the care of special needs patients including patients from the Craniofacial Unit at the Women’s and Children’s Hospital in Adelaide. Christopher has provided nursing home care since 2004 in regional areas such as Kangaroo Island, the Barossa Valley and to the residents of Nerilda, a Port Augusta Nursing Home and Wami Kata, an Aboriginal Nursing Home. Participant feedback received following the webinar indicated that Christopher presented a thought provoking topic and participants were impressed by the community concern and assistance he delivers.
