GDC’s planned CPD changes receive broad support

9th May 2014

The General Dental Council (GDC) has announced the findings of a recent consultation on its planned changes to continuing professional development (CPD) rules, revealing the industry is widely supportive of the reforms.

Just over 600 responses were received from dental professionals, postgraduate dental deaneries and professional associations over the course of the consultation, which ran from December 2013 to March 2014.

It was revealed that 60.7 percent agreed with the proposed high-level CPD learning outcomes, while 79.5 percent backed the planned requirement to undertake a minimum of ten hours of CPD in each consecutive period of two years.

Meanwhile, 73.5 percent said they agreed with the proposed CPD documentary evidence requirement and 84.5 percent concurred with the proposed approach to CPD for those holding temporary GDC registration.

A statement from the organisation said: "The GDC will take the range of comments made in response to the consultation into account when making a final decision about enhanced CPD, which is anticipated to take place later in 2014."

Currently, the organisation is holding a consultation on draft guidance for its Professional Conduct Committee panels, which will run until June 30th 2014.ADNFCR-8000103-ID-801719195-ADNFCR
