Hope can reduce burnout (and what you can do to become more hopeful)
Gain a greater understanding of the nature and theories of hope, and how we can build and sustain hopefulness in ourselves and our team.
Could simple civility save lives and reduce dentolegal risk?
Civility in the workplace can have a powerful impact on staff engagement, team collaboration, error reduction, and dentolegal risk. It can also improve patient safety and organisational performance. Discover how and why.
Safe places – is your organisation as safe as you think?
Develop a greater understanding of the definition and principles of cultural safety, how to identify cultural bias, and how to promote equitable patient care and a safer workplace.
Burnout is now a global problem in dental care. This virtual workshop provides clinicians with the knowledge, insights, and practical strategies to help build resilience.
Professionalism and integrity
Learn more about what ’professionalism’ and ‘integrity’ mean and the characteristics of a professional person. Find out how a professional person is socially responsible and what unprofessional behaviour looks like.
It is important for dental professionals to be consistently honest both in their practice and when it comes to the accuracy of records or documents. Understand some of the ways doubt can be created, even when the dentist's actions have been entirely honest.
Discover more about the three principles that, when combined, make up respect, and learn about the most commonly cited grounds for discrimination against patients. This course looks at the ways a healthcare provider can show respect for a patient's autonomy.
Relating to colleagues
What should you do if you have concerns that lead you to believe patients could be at risk or that their quality of care is compromised by a professional colleague? Learn all about how differences of professional opinion should be managed and how a dentist should handle referrals from another colleague.
Dental professionals face all manner of risks so it makes sense to improve our risk intelligence. By having a better understanding of what risk is and what contributes to our perception of risk, we will be better equipped to communicate with our patients about risk and manage any risk we face.
Clinical decision making
Clinical decision making is an integral component of all healthcare – and dentistry is no exception. As clinicians, we would all like to think that our clinical decision making is objective and unbiased. However, this may not always be the case.
