Continued Professional Development

The education programme at the Scottish Dental Show 2019 provides up to nine hours of verifiable Continued 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.
