GDC Online Event: new ways of setting standards and guidance

By GDC | 12th September 2023 | News

Starting this month, GDC will be holding online events to explore with dental professionals and other stakeholders new ways of setting standards and guidance.

The current Standards for the Dental Team are 10 years old but, before they start updating them, GDC want to have a conversation with their stakeholders about the best way to provide standards and guidance for the dental team. GDC want to work with stakeholders to find the right model, pace, information, and support required to do this well - before they take any steps towards it.

The online events will explore:

  • The goals that refreshed or new guidance should achieve.
  • The benefits and challenges of the current Standards of the Dental Team.
  • A potential new model of guidance centred around principles of professionalism.
  • Any other potential alternative models to consider.

What would be needed to make sure that moving to any new model would be a success.

Dates and times of the online events:

  • Thursday 21 September, 15:30-17:30
  • Tuesday 26 September, 18:30-20:30
  • Saturday 30 September, 10:30-12:30
  • Wednesday 11 October, 15:30-17:30
  • Wednesday 18 October, 18:30-20:30

Book yourself a place on one of the events via GDC Eventbrite page.

Please note that all the events will have the same agenda items, but GDC are repeating them on five dates to ensure as many stakeholders as possible can have access to an event. 

These events are not just for stakeholder organisations, but also for individual professionals.
