Directorate of Multiprofessional Dental Education VOCATIONAL TRAINING IN GENERAL DENTAL PRACTICE TYNESIDE SCHEME STUDY DAY PROGRAMME 2 August 2007 to 6 December 2007 There is something I don’t know that I am supposed to know, I don’t know what it is I don’t know, and yet I am supposed to know, and I feel I look stupid If I seem both not to know it and not know what it is I don’t know. Therefore I pretend I know it. This is nerve-racking since I don’t know what it is I must pretend to know. Therefore I pretend to know everything. I feel you know what I am supposed to know but you can not tell me what it is because you don’t know that I don’t know what it is. You may know what I don’t know, but not that I don’t know it, and I can’t tell you. So you will have to tell me everything. From Knots By R. D. Laing AIMS AND OBJECTIVES OF VOCATIONAL TRAINING FOR THE GENERAL DENTAL SERVICES Aims The aims of vocational training in General Dental Practice are to meet the needs of unsupervised general dental practice by developing the clinical skills learned as an undergraduate and teaching administrative and practice management skills to promote high ethical standards and quality care for patients. The aims are achieved by: introducing the VDP to general dental practice; identifying personal strengths and weaknesses, and balancing them through a planned programme of training; enabling the trainee to practise and improve skills free from undue financial pressure; promoting the implementation of peer-and self-review; establishing the need for professional education, training and audit as a continuing process. Objectives The objective of vocational training is that the VDP should be eligible to practise unsupervised in NHS Primary Dental Care services. By the end of the training period the VDP should be able to: demonstrate the clinical skills, knowledge and values relevant to the work of a GDS/PDS performer; demonstrate the necessary knowledge and skills for the organisation and management of successful practice; manage the psychological aspects of patient care; work successfully as a member of the practice team: make competent and confident professional decisions with an awareness of personal strengths and weaknesses, including the need to refer when appropriate; demonstrate that he or she is working within the relevant guidelines regarding ethics and confidentiality of general dental practice; implement regulations and guidelines for the delivery of safe practice; know how to draw on the wide range of advice and support available to general dental practitioners; demonstrate that he or she understands that continuing professional development should be a lifelong commitment. GUIDELINES I Professional Development Portfolio This must be kept up to date at all times and in order that the VT Trainer and VT Advisor can add timely comments. Problem Solving An essential component of a vocational dental practitioner’s practice life should be the opportunity to discuss any problems with their Trainer or Vocational Training Advisor. During the year there will be formal sessions of problem solving as indicated in the programme. Problems of a confidential nature can be discussed with the Vocational Training Advisor in his office on these study days, or by telephone if the problem is of an urgent nature. Dress It is not always possible to offer advice covering every occasion, except to say that style of dress should be appropriate for a professional person and the setting. Informality is generally welcome, but jeans, tee-shirt and trainers are rarely appropriate dress for the course. Punctuality All study days start at 9.00 am unless otherwise stated. Allow plenty of time for parking. Afternoon sessions usually start at 1.30 pm. Certification Please note the attendance on study days is obligatory for Vocational Dental Practitioners. Medical certificates are required for absence through illness. The VT Advisor should be notified as soon as possible of absence through illness or other problem. Trainers Trainers are most welcome to attend the study day course at any time, end of term assessment sessions are mandatory. In addition trainers should attend one Trainer meeting each term. Please liaise with the VT Advisor if you wish to attend hands-on courses which may be of limited capacity. Active participation in the study days and the wider scheme is encouraged. Trainers are welcome to teach or facilitate at study day sessions, and a 'buddy system' is in place so that VDPs can access advice from a named trainer when their own trainer may be unavailable e.g. during holidays. Assessment VDPs will be expected to undertake the following assessments during the course of their training contract 40 DOPS (Direct Observation of Procedural Skills), 16 to be done by end of November, 13 to be done during December - February and 11 to be done during March – May 2 rounds of PSQ (Patient Satisfaction Questionnaires) in October and March, 20 successfully completed PSQs will be required in each round 7 Key Skills Portfolio and either a Clinical Audit or Case Report all to MFGDP standard. Regulations available at http://www.fgdp.org.uk/pdf/mfgdp_regs.pdf Training will be given at the introductory day on the 2 nd August 2007 at Samsung Conference Centre, Teesside. The VT Advisor will review progress on assessment on Thursday 25 October 2007. Evaluation Throughout the course trainers and VDPs will be asked to evaluate the training by completion of questionnaires. This is an important component which ensures that the course has been appropriate to your needs, and we value your co-operation with this process. The summarised evaluations are considered by the VT Advisors in curriculum planning, and are sent to the tutor/lecturer concerned so they are aware of how their course was received. GUIDELINES II Finance VDPs will be expected to attend all study days in the programme, some of which will be away from the region. They will be responsible for their own travel and subsistence costs. A sum of money will be held by the Deanery and this will be used to subsidise the costs of major events e.g. the Introductory Conference at Low Wood and other study days where overnight accommodation is needed. VDPs and trainers must be aware this will not cover the entire costs and additional contributions will be necessary. VDPs and trainers will be advised of these costs from time to time. Tea and coffee at Study Days There will be tea and coffee will be available to purchase from the dental school refectory.
