F29 – Medically Complex Patients

This lecture will discuss the fact that we see more patients with medical problems and on medicine, which may affect the safety and outcome of oral health care. Also, physicians are reluctant to “clear” patients. The misuse of medical consults to “clear” patients will be illustrated with examples from everyday practice.

Learning Objectives:
• Break a complex medical patient into smaller pieces and address them one by one
• Understand how to manage medically complex patients
• Interact with other health care providers to safer treat these patients
