The impact of recent reforms on dentists
Do you want to hear more about the impact of recent reforms on dentists, dental care professionals and patients?
A conference exploring changes in regulation affecting dentistry will be taking place on 9 October 2008 at Woburn House in London.
The event, organised by the patients’ safety charity AvMA (Action Against Medical Accidents), and run in association with the General Dental Council (GDC), will also tackle the medico-legal issues facing dentistry and examine how to improve patient safety and learn from mistakes to ensure a safer workplace.
Speakers at the conference include:
• Duncan Rudkin, Chief Executive and Registrar of the GDC, exploring the regulation of the dental team
• Dr Janice Fiske, Senior Lecturer, Sedation and Special Care Dentistry, King’s Dental Institute, discussing special care dentistry and dealing with patients with additional needs
• Carol Varlaam, lay member of the GDC, focusing on revalidation for the dental team.
The event has been designed for all members of the dental team, as well as those concerned with clinical governance, risk management, patient safety and complaint management in dentistry, both in the NHS and in private practice.
