Two lectures providing information on keeping up with changing legislation and regulation and making sure our way of working is in line with this.
Aims and Objectives
To raise an understanding of how we stay in touch with changes in regulation and legislation and introduce the necessary workings into a practice team. To look at how patient expectations have changed and how this can alter how we communicate and act towards them, especially in regard to new technology and techniques. To make sure we protect ourselves when using new techniques.
This lecture contains educational aspects that satisfy all four of the GDC’s development outcomes (A, B, C and D) for verifiable CPD and will help delegates enhance patient care by making sure practices are keeping up to date, safe and effective.
