The modern approach to managing your CPD 

With your entire portfolio in  one place, your personal annual declarations become completely hassle-free, especially as the app is able to sync directly to your eGDC account. The process of uploading your CPD is quick, easy and secure and completely removes the worry over meeting the annual or five- yearly inspections from the GDC and CQC.

CPD QR codes – the new way to log your CPD

QR – or ‘Quick Response’ – codes are fast becoming one of the most important ways to connect print-based media with the digital world.

This year at the Dentistry Show, you’ll be able to use QR codes to log CPD instantly as you earn at exhibitors’ stands. Armed with just your smartphone, you’ll be able to update your CPD log, collect your certificate and even sync it all to your eGDC with a single scan.

The modern approach to managing your CPD

CPD regulation is on the increase, with both the GDC and CQC expecting your records to be accurate and available for inspection. This probably means that your practice manager will expect you to provide your records to the practice and to keep them up-to-date.

If you’re still using paper records for your CPD, this is going to become more difficult as time goes on – the paperwork increases every year and has to be held for up to 10 years in case it’s required for audit purposes. It’s even worse if you work part-time at more than one practice and both sites require your records!

As a busy dental professional, you need solutions to make your life easier, not harder.

Study finds e-learning as good as traditional training for health professionals

LONDON, UK: Electronic learning could enable millions more students to train as doctors and nurses worldwide, according to the latest research. A review commissioned by the  World Health Organization (WHO) and carried out by Imperial College London researchers concluded that e-learning is likely to be as effective as traditional methods for training health professionals.

PDP - probably done poorly?

PDPs are already a requirement for clinicians in the NHS so it’s probably not going to be too long before they move from being merely a ‘recommendation’ to a requirement for all dental professionals. For this reason you should create one now, particularly if you are near the start of a new CPD cycle.

CPD - lessons learned

The CPD review undertaken by the GDC last year made clear that the dental profession understands the value of CPD and its role in providing patients with confidence in the profession as a whole.

Understanding the value of CPD

The CPD review undertaken by the GDC last year made clear that the dental profession understands the value of CPD and its role in providing patients with confidence in the profession as a whole.

Despite this, a quarter of the DCPs whose cycle ended last summer did not report their activities to the GDC by July 31. A month later, even after taking account those who had returned or left the profession, there were still almost 2000 DCPs who were non-compliant.

These facts suggest that there is something fundamentally wrong with the current process of recording and reporting CPD activity.

Going paperless

Ever since the invention of the desktop computer, offices across the world have been making the slow transition away from paper-based operations towards a digitised paperless office environment. As time has passed, a number of key innovations have aided this transition – not least the birth of the internet, smart phone technology, and the launch of Apple’s iPad in 2010. All of which mean that now in 2013, the paperless office is very much within all our grasps.
As any technology analyst will tell you, going paperless is as much about mindset as it is about technological innovation. With computers, scanners, laptops and tablets all now widely available, the main factor holding back many businesses from going paperless is the company culture itself. Still people continue to print emails that don’t need printing, and still in meetings some presenters would rather print out handouts than provide information in electronic form.

While the technology behind the latest generation of ‘smart’ phones is certainly impressive, the real strength of the modern day smart phone is just as much in its software and applications as it is in the gadget itself.
