Continuing Professional Development

The education programme at the Scottish Dental Show 2019 provides up to nine hours of verifiable Continuing Professional Development (CPD) and compliance with the new Enhanced CPD scheme.

A hands-on implant workshop from 2018
With 50+ speaker sessions and even hands-on workshops, there’s something for everyone

Enhanced CPD outcomes

In the enhanced CPD scheme, specific standards for the dental team are brought to the forefront of CPD planning and activity through four development outcomes.

These outcomes provide encouragement to link learning activity more closely to the standards and help you embed the principles further in your working life. The four development outcomes are set out below:

Outcome A

Effective communication with patients, the dental team and others across dentistry, including when obtaining consent, dealing with complaints and raising concerns when patients are at risk.

Outcome B

Effective management of self and effective management of others or effective work with others in the dental team, in the interests of patients; providing constructive leadership where appropriate.

Outcome C

Maintenance and development of knowledge and skill within your field of practice.

Outcome D

Maintenance of skills, behaviours and attitudes which maintain patient confidence in you and the dental profession and put patients’ interests first.

Claiming CPD

All participants will be awarded a CPD certificate for each lecture you attend. You will be scanned out of each lecture or workshop, and there will be no admittance to a lecture or workshop once it has started, nor will you be scanned out if you leave early or after you have left the lecture theatre or workshop room. If all possible lectures are attended, then a maximum of 9 hours CPD is possible.

Your certificate will be emailed to the email address you used to register approximately one week after the show along with the 2019 feedback questionnaire.

Claiming CPDA at the Scottish Dental Show

The educational content has been approved for Continuing Professional Development Allowance (CPDA) which is claimable by dentists only. To be eligible for CPDA a dentist must attend more than 1 lecture in each session, morning or afternoon. A GP214 will be issued for the total CPDA awarded.
