Dental Nurses in practice CPD course
(English) What and Why – CPD?
Undertaking CPD is compulsory and key to maintaining your place on the Dental Care Professional (DCP) register. As a registered dental nurse you are required to demonstrate 150 hours of CPD over a 5-year cycle. A minimum of 50 hours of this requirement must be verifiable CPD.
The General Dental Council (GDC) defines continuing professional development (CPD) as:
Study, training courses, seminars, reading and other activities undertaken by a dental professional, which could reasonably be expected to advance his /her development as a dental professional.
CPD can be verifiable or non-verifiable.
Verifiable CPD has clear aims, outcomes and objectives, coupled with quality control measures, and carries documentary proof of completion/participation. This includes
- attending conferences
- completing online CPD tests
Non-verifiable CPD (general CPD) encompasses all self-directed activities that will benefit your lifelong learning, such as (but not limited to):
- reading books
- reading journals
Back to basics
Revisiting the latest standards and learning new skills relevant in the field of dental practice.
