DDU launches new dento-legal CPD case studies


  Posted by: Dental Design      6th December 2022

The Dental Defence Union (DDU) has today launched a new series of dento-legal case studies in which members can receive guidance and advice, as well as the chance to get 45 minutes free verifiable continuing professional development (CPD) by passing the related assessment.

The DDU has launched these modules to support dental members ahead of them submitting the GDC’s CPD requirements before the December deadline.

The case studies are based on the sorts of issues and dilemmas faced by members on a daily basis and give 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:

  • Confrontational and aggressive patients
  • Assessing a patient’s capacity to give consent
  • Direct access
  • What to do following a potential data breach

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 to our members. Completion of the 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.”
