Claiming your CPD and CPDA

Enhanced CPD development 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.
