ONLINE EVENT

Record keeping - surely it can't be that difficult?

Friday 5 November 2021 | ONLINE

Development Outcomes: A,B and D

Covering the essential do's and don'ts in record keeping

This live workshop session explores current best practice for record keeping. The consequences of not keeping good records will be demonstrated.

What should we be recording? How can discussions be recorded? You will find out how to implement effective processes which can be followed, with confidence, by the whole dental team.


Learning aims

To provide delegates with an interactive review of clinical record keeping from a dento-legal perspective balancing up the time it takes to make good, comprehensive and contemporaneous notes with the practical realities of treating patients in practice.

Learning objectives

By the end of this event delegates should be able to:

  • Recognise why record keeping is necessary and what purpose it serves
  • Appreciate the challenges faced in making good records
  • Reflect on record keeping and standards for particular clinical disciplines such as periodontology, restorative care, oral surgery and pain appointments
  • Understand the limitations of templates and custom screen with record keeping.

Please note: this is a live and interactive online event. It will not be recorded and it will not be possible to view on-demand afterwards.
