The GDC defines CPD as ‘Study, training courses, seminars, reading & other activities undertaken by a dental professional, which could reasonably be expected to advance his or her development as a dental professional.
Verifiable CPD needs to have clear aims, outcomes and objectives & carries proof of completion / participation such as a certificate.
Core topics includes: Medical Emergencies (min 10 hours), Disinfection & Decontamination (min 5 hours) and Radiography & Radiation Protection (min 5 hours). For dental nurses who work in the clinical environment, legal & ethical issues & complaints handling also need to be covered (either verifiable or non verifiable). A core topic is mandatory.
