from University of Edinburgh via Medical Xpress
Dental experts have drawn up a definitive list of scenarios that patients should never face in a bid to ensure excellent patient care worldwide. The checklist — which includes failing to note patients' allergies and not screening for mouth cancers during checkups — is the first international agreement of its type in dentistry. The experts say it could be a major step forward in improving patient well-being across the globe. Monitoring these events will allow clinicians to quickly identify serious errors in procedure and could enable health authorities to monitor dentists' performance, researchers say.
