GDC/ADEE 2020

Aims & Objectives

During 2018-2019, a project team under the auspices of the ADEE undertook wide-ranging review of CPD - full report and executive summary. This was commissioned and published by the UK’s General Dental Council in January 2019.

During 2019-2020, a project team under the auspices of the ADEE undertook two comprehensive reviews of ‘professionalism’ and ‘preparedness for practice’. The latter addressed the issue at the point of graduation (registration) of UK graduates. These reviews were commissioned by the GDC and published in August 2020. During the reviews, the ADEE team lead chaired a ‘panel session’ on ‘professionalism’ as part of a GDC learning event on their strategy of ‘Moving Upstream’ in February 2020. Much of this event centred on the Delphi Survey about professionalism which received in excess of 1000 responses providing a wealth of data for analysis and contribution to the final report.
