Entries are now being accepted for the Premier Awards 2011. The Premier Awards were originally created to reward dental professionals who recognise the importance of patient safety within the dental practice, and are open to all dental professionals, both clinical and non-clinical.
With a total prize fund of £6,000, the Premier Awards offer one of the largest cash prizes for dental risk management projects in the UK. There are now six subject areas available for submissions:
• Ethics and professionalism
• Record keeping
• Cross-infection control
• Teamworking and skillmix
• Consent and communication,
• Health and Safety.
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)
Dental Protection, the world’s leader in indemnity and risk management support for the dental team has renewed their longstanding partnership with Schülke, the European leader in infection control, to present the Premier Awards for 2011. Once again the event will recognise individual 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 in London during Winter 2011.
