Great meeting with the General Dental Council yesterday afternoon.
Enhanced CPD 5 years on.
Why evualute the scheme?
Dental care professionals are still not understanding their #personaldevelopmentplan.
How can we help make this more clear?
Dental Training Ltd offer a FREE online course that details why a PDP is important, how to create a PDP and what needs to be included in a PDP.
Confusion on the ‘recommended’ topics set by the GDC are being reviewed.
What will make these guidelines more clear?
My answer - Separate the dental roles, and make certain ‘recommended’ topics manadatory.
Medical emergencies and safeguarding, for example, should not be a recommendation!
Dental education and career progression is important for both patient safety and your own future.
