The Premier Awards has added ‘dental ethics’ to its list of original paper submissions.
Dental Protection and Schülke announced the expansion of the awards that offers a total prize fund of £6,000.
The awards offer one of the largest cash prizes for dental risk management projects in the UK.
With the addition of the new category, there are now six subject areas to choose from:
• Infection control
• Health and safety
• Record keeping,
• Teamworking and skillmix
Because ethics is now a GDC recommended core subject for CPD, any time spent developing a project for this category would count towards your unverified CPD totals.
All members of the dental team are eligible to enter, whatever stage of their career they have reached:
• Dental care professionals (undergraduate, postgraduate or practising)
• Dental undergraduates
• Dentists (postgraduate or practising)
The event recognises achievements in developing awareness and the effective management of risk within clinical dentistry.
This year’s awards will be presented during The Premier Symposium to be held 28 November 2008 at Kings College, London.
Application forms and leaflets are now available from Dental Protection.
