AimsDental record keeping is crucial to the care of patients and to the investigation of any complaints, GDC issues, claims and adverse incidents.

At a time of challenge, records can provide the clinician with a good defence, or a poor defence. Sometimes the difference in content can be small, but significant. Record keeping is not about volume, but about quality. Knowing what to include and why is the key. Sharing her years of experience in helping dentists who have run into trouble Sue outlines the essential dos and don’ts of record keeping, looking at what is possible within a busy working day.
Learning objectives

What not to do can be as important as what to do! The session includes real life examples of getting it wrong – and getting it right, including:

  • How to ensure that you record the essentials
  • How to comply with GDC and NHS record keeping requirements
  • How to identify common problems record keeping pitfalls, and how to avoid them.
Learning contentBy the end of the session delegates will be in a position to understand the essentials requirements for record keeping, how to use the team to their best advantage, and how to check that they are getting it right.
