Enhanced Verifiable CPD from the
University of Birmingham

Leadership in dental teams

In this module we relate developments in the field of leadership to dental practice. Our emphasis is on the main approaches to leadership, excluding those that may be more applicable to larger organisations. There are many more approaches to leadership in the literature and the field is constantly developing.

Leadership is not just for bosses - all members of the dental team are expected to provide some sort of leadership.

When inspecting dental practices, the Care Quality Commission (CQC) is very interested in this topic. Taking this course will give you a grounding in leadership

The CQC will look at the following points:

Is there the leadership capacity and capability to deliver high-quality, sustainable care?

  1. Do leaders have the skills, knowledge, experience and integrity that they need – both when they are appointed and on an ongoing basis?
  2. Do leaders understand the challenges to quality and sustainability, and can they identify the actions needed to address them?
  3. Are leaders visible and approachable?
  4. Are there clear priorities for ensuring sustainable, compassionate, inclusive and effective leadership, and is there a leadership strategy or development programme, which includes succession planning?

The Leadership in dental teams online learning module has clear and concise aims, objectives and anticipated outcomes, listed below. These will appear on the Dentaljuce Enhanced CPD Certificate, along with the time spent, dates, and detailed topics you studied within the module. Certificates can be printed at any time, covering any range of dates. Dentaljuce CPD complies with the UK GDC's requirements for enhanced verifiable continuing professional development.
