Referrals Audit September 2016

Referral Audit For The Dental Team

The Northern Division are pleased to be offering an audit project this year on 27th September 2016 in conjunction with HENE; following on from the success of our decontamination audit in 2013. The event will be held on a Tuesday evening to minimalise disruption to attendees busy practice and personal lives. We aim to guide attendees through the process of conducting an audit, providing the framework for completing an audit in their own practice and assessing and validating the audit project once completed. To book a place on this unique course click here.

Our focus this year is on quality of referrals, and we are delighted to welcome Simon Stone, Mark Pearsall and Mike Nugent to compliment the audit preparation by discussing appropriate restorative, sedation and oral surgery referrals in our region to improve your practice referral guidelines and acceptance

It aims to be an en excellent step-by-step audit project suitable for any member of your practice team to participate, improving the quality and success of referrals from your practice, and getting your personal or practice audit log up to date to conform to current GDC and CQC guidance.

The cost is only £50 per attendee to include buffet refreshments on the evening and independent assessment and feedback on your completed project. We would recommend that all team members who will be involved in the project attend the evening.

Time: 17.30pm

Venue: Please note, the venue has been changed from the originally advertised Durham Centre to Bourne House. Both of these venues are in the same commercial park, within 0.3 miles of one another.
