INFECTIONS IN IMMUNE COMPROMISED PERSONS

CONTINUING EDUCATION - DENTISTS, HYGIENISTS and ASSISTANTS
All Texas licensed dentists and dental hygienists are required to complete 12 hours annually of continuing education in accordance with the Dental Practice Act. Omega Dental Seminars is offering the opportunity to earn a total of 6 hours of accredited continuing education in two, half day seminars while cruising aboard Carnival's Ecstasy November 14 to 19, 2009. Dr. John A. Molinari will present all seminars.

Dr. John A. Molinari SPEAKER;
Dr. John A. Molinari received a B.S. in Biology from St. Vincent College and a PhD in Microbiology from the University of Pittsburgh School of Dental Medicine. He is currently Professor and Chairman of the Department of Biomedical Sciences at the University of Detroit Mercy School of Dentistry. He has published over 300 scientific articles, text chapters, and abstracts in the areas of microbiology and immunology, and lectures nationally and internationally on topics dealing with infectious diseases and infection control. Dr. Molinari is also co-author of the text Practical Infection Control in Dentistry, with the 3rd edition scheduled for publication this year. His activities also included serving as a consultant for the CDC, ADA Council on Scientific Affairs, Council on Dental Practice, and hospitals in the Detroit area in the areas of infectious disease and infection control. Among his many achievements and credentials, he is a member of the Editorial Board for The Journal of the American Dental Association.

COURSES:
#1-EMERGING INFECTIOUS DISEASE CHALLENGES (Sunday seminar): Advances in medicine and science during the early and mid 20th century re-enforced the common perception that microbial diseases no longer presented a major concern for human infection. What was unrecognized, however, was the reality that microorganisms have enormous potential for evolution and adaptation to external factors, which affect their surrounding environments. As proof, infectious diseases described over the past decades include those caused by newly discovered microbial pathogens, re-emergent infections with drug-resistant strains, and infections that have become increasingly resistant to previously successful antimicrobials. In addition to presenting threats to the general population, a number of these infections also present occupational risks to health care providers. This seminar will consider infectious challenges presented by multiple microbial groups and diseases. These are blood-borne pathogens (hepatitis B and C viruses), bioaerosols (influenza viruses including avian influenza and tuberculosis), and direct contact staphylococcal infections including methicillin-resistant Staphylococcus aureus (MRSA) in the context of current epidemiology and scientific evidence. Included in the discussion are features and impact of clinical infection, risk factors, potential for microbial transmission, and appropriate infection control precautions for dental and medical professionals.

#2-INFECTIONS IN IMMUNE COMPROMISED PERSONS (Wednesday seminar): Clinicians continue to encounter an increasing number of patients who have been diagnosed with diseases and conditions which compromise host immune defenses. A common major challenge resulting from the original medical problem is subsequent immunosuppression and predisposition of the person to infection. This discussion will consider selected diagnosed diseases, which can manifest quantitative or qualitative defects in immune capabilities, along with a resultant patient susceptibility to a variety of microbial infections. Included will be persons with representative autoimmune disorders (i.e. systemic lupus erthematosus), cirrhosis, and other liver dysfunctions, diabetes mellitus, functional or anatomic asplenia, leukopenic challenges resulting from neoplasia or transplantation, as well as multiple acquired immune deficiency syndromes arising as sequelae to a primary microbial infection. In an emerging era of opportunistic infection, medical and dental clinicians must strive to develop stronger professional relationships, in order to best address multiple infectious disease challenges for the expanding patient population.

CONTINUING EDUCATION CREDITS: (Total of 6 CEU's): These courses have been approved by the Texas Dental Hygienists' Association a State Board of Dental Examiners approved provider of continuing education for DENTISTS, DENTAL HYGIENISTS, AND DENTAL ASSISTANTS.
