Is the course subject relevant to you?
The PDP is designed for you to carefully consider your role as a dental professional, and what CPD will give you maximum benefit for maintaining and developing your practice in your current and future areas of work. The GDC encourages you to regularly review your plan as it relates to your role and daily practice.
For the GDC, your PDP must include:
- The CPD you plan to undertake during your cycle, which must include CPD that is relevant to your current or intended field(s) of practice;
- The anticipated development outcomes that will link to each activity;
- The timeframes within which you expect to complete your CPD over your cycle.
The development outcomes:
You must make sure each planned and completed activity has at least one outcome (A, B, C, D) linked. It is possible for some CPD activities to link to multiple outcomes. The GDC encourages you to choose CPD to cover all four development outcomes in your cycle.
