Meet your GDC CPD obligations while having fun and refreshing your skills with our specialist courses for Dental Practices
Medical emergencies in Dental Practices are rare, however they do happen and all members of the dental team need to know their role in the event of an emergency.
The General Dental Council emphasises that “all dental professionals are responsible for putting patients interests first, and acting to protect them”. As part of that commitment all dental professionals must undertake continuous professional development (CPD).
Medical emergencies are one of the three core subjects which must be covered in any 5 year CPD cycle. The GDC recommend a minimum of 10 hours is spent on medical emergencies in that time period, with a recommendation of at least 2 hours CPD conducted in this subject every year.
We offer two courses specifically for Dental Practices:
This 2-hour course provides you with an update of your basic skills, including CPR & AED
This 4-hour course blends Medical Emergencies and Drugs training with your CPR & AED update
