Does Your Dataset Match Your Mindset:
Understanding Clinical Failures

The ability to provide patient care that yields a predictable outcome is dependent upon an individualized risk assessment for your patient. Unfortunately, the majority of data utilized in making decisions regarding patient care is based on survival analysis, which is procedure-generated and may not accurately reflect the individual needs of your patient. This program will provide a conceptual framework for clinical practice that is simple to implement and will create a paradigm shift in the way we interface with our patients and collect data. In addition, the program will introduce new dental software that will link the benefits of evidence based science to clinical protocols, thereby providing all the necessary analysis, improving quality assurance, and resulting in a more seamless integration of other developing technologies.

From this lecture participants will learn:
1. The importance of standardized data collection leading to improved data analysis.
2. To develop critical risk parameters to minimize failures and maximize successful outcomes.
3. To reduce confusion regarding different modes of failure.
