Audit sample: the quality of radiographs

The BDA is currently working with the FGDP to produce a number of updated ‘cookbook’ audits. The first of these, on radiographs, is now available. This includes the methodology and Excel spreadsheets for data collection. Further audits will follow over the next few weeks.

Continuing professional development

The General Dental Council (GDC) requires all its registrants to undertake continuing professional development.

Foundation training

Dental foundation training (DFT) and vocational training (VT) is a post-qualification training period, mainly in general dental practice, which UK graduates need to undertake in order to work in NHS practice.

Clinical audit and peer review

Clinical audit encourages individual GDPs to examine different aspects of their practice, to make improvements where the need is identified and, from time to time, to re-examine areas that have been audited to make certain that a high quality of service is being maintained or further improved.
