DDU launches new dento-legal CPD case studies

The Dental Defence Union (DDU) has launched a new series of dento-legal case studies to offer guidance and advice to members, as well as the chance to gain free verifiable continuing professional development (CPD) by passing the assessments.

The DDU has launched these dento-legal case studies to support dental members' CPD requirements ahead of the GDC's December deadline.

The case studies are based on the sorts of issues and dilemmas faced by members on a daily basis, giving members the opportunity to learn from others' experiences - as well as demonstrating how the DDU can help when members need it the most.

Topics covered in the case studies include:

These CPD case studies are just one of the ways that the DDU supports its members. Other services include access to a free employment law advice line for practice principals, contract checking service for associates, principals and self-employed hygienists/therapists and an exclusive rate on accountancy, tax and business advisory services. 

John Makin, head of the DDU, said:

"I’m delighted that we are now offering these new CPD case studies for members. Completing these modules contributes verifiable CPD within the recommended categories to help meet the GDCs requirements, but more importantly gives an insight into some of the tricky situations that can arise in practice and how to manage the risks they can pose."
