The management of sharps injuries in a dental healthcare setting    

Session synopsis

This session will focus on sharps injuries and the potential risk of acquiring infections such as HIV, hepatitis B virus and hepatitis C virus in the dental healthcare settings. Reports show that approximately 5000 people had occupational exposure to body fluids between 2004 and 2013. It is therefore crucial that dental healthcare workers are trained in best practice for the immediate management of these injuries. 

Lecture filmed at the British Dental Conference and Exhibition 2016.

Following her graduation with an honours degree in dentistry and achieving a Master's Degree in Oral Medicine from Cairo University, Egypt, Noha completed a period of general dental training and became a Member of the Faculty of Dental Surgery, Royal College of Physicians and Surgeons of Glasgow. Later on, she was awarded one of the very few academic training posts in Clinical Oral Microbiology and became a Fellow of the Royal College of Pathologists by examination. Her PhD thesis was focused on the interrelationship between oral microbiome and host immune response in patients with Behçet's Disease.
