BADT shows support for BADN Menopause PolicyNews
Posted by: The Probe 13th June 2022
The British Association of Dental Therapists (BADT) has announced its support for the BADN Menopause Policy launched in March this year.
The Policy outlines the challenges faced by menopausal women in the workplace and suggests ways in which employers can support menopausal employees. Dental practices, laboratories, clinics, organisations and dental industry companies are asked to adopt the Policy and implement it in their workplace.
BADT President Debbie Hemington said, “BADT are proud to support this superb initiative by the BADN. As a predominantly female profession still, this will impact so many of our members and their families and having some written guidance to share with workplaces will be invaluable to anyone who needs it. BADN are to be commended on highlighting the impact of this topical issue and in raising awareness among the whole dental team. Dental practices could now lead the way by adopting the policy and showing that progress within the field is not confined to clinical techniques.”
BADN’s Menopause Policy is also supported by the British Society of Hygiene and Therapy (BSDHT), the College of General Dentistry (CGDent), the Dental Laboratories Association (DLA), the Dental Technologists’ Association (DTA), the Orthodontic National Group (ONG), and the British Veterinary Nurses’ Association (BVNA).
The advice sheet/policy is available on the BADN website www.badn.org.uk.
