In Shifting the balance, we commit to sharing learning and intelligence with dental professionals more proactively. One simple and effective way to do this is to develop case studies from fitness to practise cases that provide interesting points for discussion and learning. We will be building a pool of case studies on our website with the aim of producing new material every few months. These will be promoted through this newsletter, along with any other tips learned from our own intelligence or further afield.
We will choose cases that align to principles in the standards, to demonstrate how the principles can be embedded in day to day professional and personal life. We also want to share the underlying interpretation of the standards when we apply them to fitness to practise proceedings. All case studies will be based on real cases, but anonymised.
