MetLife now offers a free guide to help dentists be better prepared for medical emergencies in their offices.
The guide, The Six Links of Survival, is made available through an arrangement with the Institute of Medical Emergency Preparation (IMEP) and the Raven Maria Blanco Foundation, and it can be downloaded at www.gotsixlinks.org.
The guide highlights the education and items needed to be adequately prepared to help a patient in crisis.
In addition to the free guide, the website also features a video discussing the importance of medical emergency preparedness and information about the benefits of IMEP membership.
MetLife is the only dental carrier that offers its network dentists and their staff a discounted membership in IMEP. The IMEP 40% discounted membership is a complement to MetLife's Quality Initiatives Program.
